Chichen Itza Pyramid Beam

When Hector Siliezar visited the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza with his wife and kids in 2009, he snapped three iPhone photos of El Castillo, a pyramid that once served as a sacred temple to the Mayan god Kukulkan. A thunderstorm was brewing near the temple, and Siliezar was trying to capture lightning crackling dramatically over the ruins.

He took 3 pics, with an interval of 15 sec. ( what it takes to save in his camera)
He sees a light and thought it was a lighting and check immediately to see if he really catch it. To his surprise the light he catch was not part of the Thunderstorm... it was a beam of light coming out of the top of the Pyramid dedicated to the Feathered Serpent God.
He was so exited that he show the pic to all the people around including a some Maya priest who ask him to keep the pic hide of the public. But another tourist there was a famous TV star and he convince them to show it to Jaime Maussan.

A containing was posted originally in the Italian website Segni dal Cielo, "Signs from Heaven", managed by Massimo Fratini, supposedly the same guy that took the pictures in front of Kukulkan pyramid. Or by someone from Italy, close to Fratini. This assumption is based in the screenshot of the computer's directory where the pics were stored. The answer is in his own website.
It seems the original images were sold to Mexican investigator Jaime Maussan, that immediately sold them to some Mexican TV channel and the matter you can watch right now:

Needless to say the name "Jaime Maussan" was ever accompanied by the word "HOAX" in the other threads about this event, but without a solid investigation.

The photo has surfaced on several Mayan doomsday discussion forums. But was the light beam a sign from the gods — a warning about Dec. 21, 2012, the date that marks the end of the Mayan calendar cycle, and when some people fear the world will end? Or is it simply the result of an iPhone glitch?
