On October 13th at 7:30 pm PDT, the local San Francisco Bay Area station KQED will air a segment about CyArk's work at Chichén Itzá as part of the Maya Skies project. The story will air on KQED 9 & KQED HD on Comcast 709.

While the segment won't air until later tonight, you can watch it now online.

CyArk's work at Chichén Itzá was part of a larger effort on the Maya Skies Project. The Maya Skies Project is a project of the Oakland, California-based Chabot Space and Science Center in conjunction with Insight Digital and ARTSLab. The project was funded through a grant from the National Science Foundation. The finished product is a full-dome planetarium show about the Maya and their astronomy. This show will open at Chabot Space and Science Center on November 21, 2009.

CyArk completed the fieldwork for the project in November 2007, and the data for the project was launched on the CyArk website in 2008. To read more about the CyArk fieldwork at Chichén Itzá , see our article in Professional Surveyor Magazine.
