Chankillo is a solar observatory in northern Peru that’s over 2500 years old. It’s now been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There’s a good description of the site and how it may have been used here, including descriptions of the thirteen towers that were integral to it’s purpose.
JAA will be meeting tonight at the Pearl Library, 6:15 PM. We’ll be watching a presentation on the creation of galaxies from Case Western Reserve University.
The Pearl Library is now allowing a maximum of 40 persons in their meeting room, so the Jackson Astronomical Association will hold our public meeting in person this Thursday, July 1, at 6:15 PM. The library is at 2416 Old Brandon Rd, Pearl, MS 39208. Please come join us and bring any questions you’ve been wanting to ask for the last 16 months!
