With the first quarter Moon setting in the west, the Milky Way appears more prominently in the starry sky of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park; a World Heritage Site in Northern Territory of Australia. The area is best known for Uluru or Ayers Rock, a single massive rock formation visible in the center of this image like a long domed rock. Uluru is one of Australia’s best known natural features which is a so-called monolith, extending about 5 km beneath the desert plain and measuring 3.6 by 2.4 km at the surface. It rises 348 meters above the plain. The photographer made this image from a location where the rock elongation on the surface is the least visible © Kwon, O Chul

    I enjoyed your expertise in seeing beauty at your website on a rainy ,”drainy” gloomy day in New England. You have an awesome observance and knack at recording what you see. It made my day thusfar.
