The Nazca Lines are located between the Inca and Nazca valleys about200 miles south of Lima, Peru. The phenomena is an assortment of complexlines and figures that draw out animals shapes and symbols. The Nazca Linesare 37 miles long and 1 mile wide. There are 70 animal forms and 900georgraphical forms which include shapes, and geometric forms. These shapesand animals can only be viewed from the sky.
For examples monkeys andspiders as well as triangles and circles. In the 1940’s, American explorer Paul Kosok visited the Nazca Linesand thoerized that the lines served as an enormous astronomicalobservatory. Another theory was developed by an English explorer, Tony Morrison. He suggested that the people of the Andes Mountains created these lines asa means of religious tradition in which they created shrines on each end ofa line and would more from shine to shrine praying and meditating. My OpinionI believe the Nazca Lines were not just a decoration but an importantaspect to civilization.
I don’t believe that the Nazca lines served as an enormousastronomical observatory due to the fact that the number of lines that wereastronomically significant were only about the same number that would bethe result of pure chance.
