Nazca Lines.- Two thousand years ago, ancient Peruvians drew lines and vast animal figures in the flat desert floor, figures which they would never see themselves, as they are only fully comprehensible from the air. Huge triangles, trapezoids, zig-zags, and animals.

How did the ancient people of the Nazca desert achieve such geometrical precision, and what is the meaning of the drawings of giant spiders and birds? Swiss author Erich von Daniken argued in "Chariots of the Gods?" that they are the remains of a giant extraterrestrial airport.

Decades of exploration and study by German-born mathematician Maria Reiche led her to see the Nazca lines as a sophisticated astronomical observatory, created to mark risings and settings of the sun, moon and stars
