What power lies in building a wall that points to a spot in the sky where a strange new Day Star That Faded appeared?
A reminder that “there’s where it happened”? Or did they believe some kind of spiritual force flowed from that spot in the sky and concentrated at the Chaco-style great house with a wall that points at the spot?
And surely there were skeptics. What if pointing to the spot in the sky enraged the mysterious powers of the Day Star spirit? What if it wasn’t enough to appease it?
At the spot up on Chimney Rock where the observatory is built, little native stone was usable. That means it all had to be carried up a narrow, steep trail, along with wooden beams, plaster, and water (to mix with the plaster).
I keep thinking about the morning that Day Star appeared. Like a hole burning through the sky, quite unlike anything any living being had seen (without the use of psychotropic plants). It must have been shocking.
Any skywatcher priest who failed to predict it would lose esteem and respect. And there was no way to predict it.
