Can anybody (down South 21.20N/89.80W) see Triangulum?

Have found some Mayan sites that form Triangulum on the ground: 1. where the meteors hit (the big one and maybe some smaller landed pieces) Chicxulub (Dzibilchaltun), Xuilub (Ichmul de Morley)and Chibilub (X-Hasil); 2. a triangle arrangement (names not listed on the map) near the modern towns of Tinum/Tenabo, Campeche (Xcalumkin is to the side).

A lot of Mayan glyphs seem to have a large circle and 2 smaller ones. At times, the 3 circles are the same (the perception would be different when looking from the roof comb area as to straight).

Apparently, the location of the 3 stones that fell are recorded on the stelaes at COBA/QUIRGUA.

There are some artifacts/glyphs/plates that seem to have this constellation's image.
