Milky Way setting over Pueblo Bonito

The core of the Milky way setting over the Pueblo Bonito great house at the Chaco Canyon World Heritage Site. The great houses of Chaco were not residences in the sense of later pueblos, but rather observatories and spiritual and ceremonial centers. Only a few caretakers lived there year round but many thousands visited for special events.
