Overseer Swallows the Summer Sun at the Parowan Gap @ Parowan Gap Petroglyphs

Saturday, November 1st, 7:30 am is a rare event you don’t want to miss.  Get out and watch astronomy and nature tell a story that only happens once a year.  There will be an informal interpretive tour beginning, as the Summer Sun is swallowed by the Overseer, entering into hibernation.  This event signifies the the changing of seasons from summer to winter, and the coming of colder weather.  Many years ago, when Native American cultures walked the lands of the Parowan Gap, the people used this warning as a means to move south to warmer climates if winter preparation was not in store.  The history of the Parowan Gap and the story told at this event is incredible.

The event is FREE OF CHARGE.  Please note, the weather will be COLD, any where from 26-32 degrees Fahrenheit, so please dress accordingly.  For more information or driving directions, please call 435-463-3735.
