This Week's Night Vision: Archeoastronomy
Posted November 23, 2018 - by Rob Morris
What is Archeoastronomy?
Honestly, if you started imagining the last Indiana Jones movie, you are in the
neighborhood of correct. But unlike that horrible mess, I’m going to show you
some pretty cool ways that the people on our planet studied the sky. From
graves to temples to simple observatories, the people who lived on Earth
thousands of years ago built some amazing structures to help them watch the
stars. We will talk about a couple of them, including the Sun Dagger at Fajada
Butte and the solstice graves at Newgrange (along with a few more).
