Visitors and members of Naples amateur astronomy association 'Unione Astrofili Napoletani' stand by a telescope during observations to refute the theories of the Mayan 'prophecy' of the world's destruction, late on December 20, 2012 at the astronomical observatory of Capodimonte in Naples. The December 21 mystery stems from a carved stone found in Tortuguero, a Mayan site in Mexico. AFP PHOTO / CARLO HERMANN (Photo credit should read CARLO HERMANN,CARLO HERMANN/AFP/Getty Images)
