Night Skies of the American Southwest
Night Skies of the American Southwest

"In the United Staes, a great many of the best places to see the night sky in its full glory, especially its crown jewel the Mikly Way, are found on our public lands of the American Southwest.  Above our National Parks and Monuments, above our National Recreation and Conservations Areas, above most of the wild places and open spaces far from cities and large urban areas, the sky is dark and the stars are so abundant than they can be overwhelming".  

Christopher K. Eaton is a photographer, writer, and filmmaker, living and working on the Colorado Plateau.  In the fall of 2017 Chris was an Artist in Residence at Mesa Verde National Park where he captured stunning images of Ancestral Puebloan dwellings bathed by the ancient light of distant stars.
