The Mayan Chilam Balam books are named after Yucatec towns such as Chumayel, Mani, and Tizimin, and are usually collections of disparate texts in which Mayan and Spanish traditions have coalesced. The Yucatec Mayas ascribed these to a legendary author called Chilam Balam, a chilam being a priest who gives oracles. Some of the texts actually consist of oracles about the coming of the Spaniards to Yucatan while mentioning a chilam Balam as its first author. This authorship was traditionally extended to include all the disparate texts found within a particular manuscript.

This page in particular bears writing in both Spanish and the Yucatec Maya language that discusses eclipses of both the moon and the sun. Eclipses were thus seen as disasters with the potential to destroy the sun and moon, so predicting them served as a warning and precaution.

Although this terminology for discussing eclipses is Maya in origin, the imagery appears to be Spanish, a combination which is not uncommon in colonial-period texts.

This fusion is due to the Maya fascination with new ideas and sciences, including those the Spanish brought with them. Eclipse of the Sun II Total Eclipse. Earth Eclipse. Eclipse, And the Moon Became as Blood. Sun's Total Eclipse.
