Traditions of the Sun

This educational web site explores the desire shared by past civilizations and today's society to observe and study the sun. The site features two interactive modules, which include satellite images, aerial photographs, panoramic pictures, time-lapse videos and other multimedia. Each module is focused on a different ancient culture: Maya in the Yucatan and Native Americans in Chaco Canyon. The site is a collaboration among NASA; the National Park Service at Chaco Canyon; the Instituto Nacional de Antropolog�a e Historia and Universidad Nacional Aut�noma de M�xico in Mexico; Space Imaging and Ideum, a media design company.
