Visitors and members of Naples amateur astronomy association 'Unione Astrofili Napoletani' enter the astronomical observatory of Capodimonte, facing the Vesuvio volcano, for observations to refute the theories of the Mayan 'prophecy' of the world's destruction, late on December 20, 2012 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)
