DescriptionThis Hohokam rock art panel at Sears Point might possibly have something to do with a great meteor storm seen by the prehistoric Hohokam at this site along the Gila River west of Gila Bend, Arizona. In this image, I composited the petroglyphs with a sky scene from the 2001 Leonid Meteor Shower showing three bright fireball trails which can be traced back to the shower radiant in the head of Leo. It might even have been a very active past Leonid storm that precipitated the making of these petroglyphs. Caution: This is my own interpretation.
Frank Zullo, Phoenix, AZ Member Since May 2011 Artist Statement I have been a professional photographer for about 40 years. Whether as a documentary film cameraman, a television news cameraman or a trudging-through-the-wilds, staying-up-all-night nature photographer, I always seem to be looking through a viewfinder exploring and trying to capture one of life's many interesting aspects.
I am a true lover of the desert with its hard-edged landscapes and wide open skies. Most recently I have been focusing my explorations on Native American rock art and archaeoastronomy.
