Medicine Wheel

Medicine Wheel

I recently had the privilege of visiting the Medicine Wheel atop Bighorn Mountain in Wyoming.  It is the first time I have gotten to see the site although I have written several articles on it.  The unusual formation of white stones originally attracted my attention as a possible archaeoastronomical site when astronomer John Eddy studied the formation and came to the conclusion that the spokes of the wheel could have been used to determine the summer solstice and other major appearances of significant astronomical objects including the stars Aldebaran, Rigel, and Sirius.  It also impresses me as one of the very few permanent sites built by hunter-gatherer societies.
