Chaco Canyon gets ‘dark sky’ recognition

NAGEEZI, N.M. (KRQE) – The National Park Service is celebrating Chaco Canyon’s designation as an international dark sky park.

Officials say the greater Chaco landscape in northwestern New Mexico is one of the best places in the U.S. for viewing the night sky.

The celebration starts with a guided walk through Chetro Ketl, one of Chaco’s great houses.

There will also be a tour of Pueblo Bonito, the most important site in the canyon, and a discussion about astronomy.

The day finishes with telescopes and a star party.
