The Aztec sun calendar is a circular stone with pictures representing how the Aztecs measured days, months, and cosmic cycles. The Sun Stone or Calendar Stone contained the pictographs for their days, months and suns. The original stone is 12 feet in diameter and weighs about 24 metric tons. It took 52 years to complete, from 1427-1479. Originally the Calendar Stone was placed atop the main temple in Tenochtitlan, the capital of the Aztec empire.
Today, Mexico City's cathedral stands on the site. The Aztec calendar faced south in a vertical position and was painted a vibrant red, blue, yellow and white. The stone was buried by the Spaniards when they conquered Tenochtitlan. The stone was lost for over 250 years until December of 1790 when it was found by accident during repair work on the cathedral. Today it is located in the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City. From 2012 movie
