"In ancient Mexico, eclipses were the most anticipated and feared astronomical event. In these cultures where their worldview was based on the struggle of the Sun going through the night to be reborn the next day, this phenomenon was a bad omen, but also a sign of renewal.
The rituals in an eclipse was to perform dances and rituals believing that the noise would help the sun to wake up from its lethargy and drive away the conflict between the two stars."
