Atacama Splendid Night

By: Babak A. Tafreshi


Region: Americas

Site: Atacama Desert - Chile

Date: November 2011

The last rays of the Moon, before setting, shines on a giant red rock in the Atacama Desert in Chile, where an ancient civilization of the region left many rock carved petroglyphs. In the sky Jupiter is on the upper left. Pleiades and Taurus are in the middle left and Orion and Sirius right above the rock in the middle. Southern stars and the Large Magellanic Cloud appear on the right end. Babak Tafreshi,
