But lets take a look at the name 'Paracas'. A direct translation of its Sanskrit cognate 'Prakash' (प्रकाश्) is 'light', 'lustre', or 'brightness'. Thousands of years back the Trident etched on the mountain shone due to the peculiarity of the mineral composition of the mountain. In ancient times, the shining trident would have been visible from high up in the skies, therefore it sometimes is regarded as a guiding beacon for ancient UFOs or 'vimanas'.
Another, and even closer, cognate of 'Paracas' is the Sanskrit 'parakash' (पराकाश) which means 'distant view', also appropriate for the 'Paracas Trident' is visible from the high skies even to this day, when the lustre of the shining mineral has eroded considerably.
