In Aztec mythology, Tonatiuh (pronounced "tO na TE wa") was the sun god. The Aztec people considered him the leader of Tollan, their heaven. He was also known as the fifth sun, because the Aztecs believed that he was the sun that took over when the fourth sun was expelled from the sky. According to their cosmology, each sun was a god with its own cosmic era. According to the Aztecs, they were still in Tonatiuh's era. The Aztecs were fascinated by the sun and carefully observed it, and had a solar calendar second only in accuracy to the Mayans'. Many of today's remaining Aztec monuments have structures aligned with the sun.
Coyolxauhqui (pronounced "kO hOl SHahW kE") was the Moon goddess according to Aztec mythology. Her name means "Golden Bells." She was the daughter of the Earth goddess, Coatlicue.
