A close look at the Supernova Pictograph in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico.
Painted on the bottom of a small overhang there are three simple designs, a life-sized hand, a ten-pointed star and a crescent moon. The ten-pointed star is claimed to be a representation of a supernova known to have occurred in c.e. 1054. Chaco Culture National Historical Park is located in the northwestern part of New Mexico. Chaco has the most exceptional concentration of pueblos in the American Southwest. Hiking up stream in Chaco Canyon you come to the Supernova pictograph high upon the vertical sandstone cliff that forms the side of the canyon.
A New Mexico based free roaming, award winning, internationally published, digital photographer, always on the qui vive for what Nature and humans provide.
Thanks for looking.
