At the end of ACB...
SPOILERS: READ AT YOUR OWN RISK

Desmond has to say 72 to a door. Before you get too close to the door to start the cinematic sequence, check it with eagle vision. You will see the Butterfly/Mask/Lorenz-Attractor-Model Glyph; the same one you find over Desmond's Abstergo bed and in the ancient Roman theater near San Giminano/Tuscany.
END SPOILERS.

Anyone know if there is a hidden meaning behind this, of if it's just there to draw your attention to the spot?

It seems like it does relate to Juno's Temple and what happened inside. The glyph is of the Butterfly Effect, which is usually mentioned in regards to weather and time travel. It's possible that the events inside Juno's Temple are extremely important and cause some kind of chain reaction leading to whatever the 12/21/2012 date is about, and the glyph is referencing that. Maybe it's triggering something that didn't happen before the last solar catastrophe, and this one small change from before will produce an entirely different outcome -- saving Earth.

Another interesting thing about the Lorenz Attractor is that you can start the equation/drawing of that glyph in lots of different coordinates and get different drawings. However, even though the drawing won't be the same, it will always form the same basic shape of butterfly wings. You could interpret this to mean even though all kinds of people, including Desmond, have made their own choices throughout history, their paths still traced out a basic path that they were "destined" to take. Perhaps that's related to how TWCB can see the future?
