There are almost 100 miles of rural uninhabited land surrounding Chaco Culture National Historic Park in North Western New Mexico. The area has long been known as an epic place to view the wonders of the night sky. On Thursday, the park is celebrating it’s designation as an International Dark Sky Park. With virutally zero light pollution around, once the sun sinks below the horizon, visitors are engulfed in utter darkness.

If you’ve been here before you’ll recognize that the Friends of Chaco website has undergone a major redesign. We are still working through some of the issues in getting this set up, but we hope our new site will better serve our members, those interested in the Park, and Chaco Culture National Historical itself.
Chaco Culture National Historical Park has just been named as the International Dark-Sky Associationʼs newest Dark Sky Park.
