Roden Crater


US |


The Roden Crater is a place where geology meets art. Roden Crater is a cinder cone type of a volcanic cone from an extinct volcano, with a remaining interior volcanic crater. The artist James Turrell acquired the 400,000-year-old, 4.8 km crater's land for his Land art project. Turrell has since been transforming the inner cone of the crater into a massive naked-eye observatory, designed specifically for the viewing and experiencing sky-light, solar, and celestial phenomena.
