New Mexico Space Trail
by Joseph T. Page II
In the Southwestern United States, the skies above New Mexico have provided an amazing stargazing experience for two millennia.

Images of America: New Mexico Space Trail catalogs sites within the state that have inspired humankind to reach for the stars. The Space Trail includes various archaeoastronomy locations, such as Chaco Canyon, which Native Americans used to predict agricultural schedules according to the sun's position during the solstice. Rocket development in Roswell, missile launches in the Tularosa Basin, astronomy efforts around the state, and commercial space flights are just a few of the stops along the trail.

Join the journey and discover night skies that are so dark that the Milky Way and its millions of luminous stars create shadows over the desert landscape.

Joseph T. Page II is a longtime resident of Southern New Mexico. Photographs detailing the New Mexico Space Trail were graciously provided by the New Mexico Museum of Space History, the US Department of Defense, various New Mexico educational institutions, and private collections.

All of the author's royalties from the sale of this book will go to the New Mexico Museum of Space History's education and historical preservation efforts.
