Some creative thinking, the night skies and Google Maps helped this Canadian teen discover a massive hidden Mayan city.

Passionately interested in the Mayan civilization for years, William Gadoury, noticed that the cities lined up just right with 22 constellations no scientist has every made this link before.

Gadoury checked a 23rd constellation that was near the Yucatan jungle in Mexico, and discovered a lost, hidden Mayan city underneath the stars.
Smart kid.
