Summer Solstice at Chaco Canyon

  • Aired: 07/06/2008

  • Rating: TV-PG
There are several places in Chaco Canyon that mark the movement of the sun throughout the year. Casa Rinconada, one of the larger kivas in the Chacoan system, is open to the public just before sunrise during the few days of the summer solstice. During these days, the longest of the year, the sun shines through a window and into a niche.
