Big Dipper shinning above Zabriskie, in Death Valley

| |

Ursa Major (Big Dipper) shinning above Zabriskie Point, that is part of Amargosa Range located east of Death Valley in Death Valley National Park, in California, United States. Noted for its erosional landscape, it is composed of sediments from Furnace Creek Lake, which dried up 5 million years ago—long before Death Valley came into existence. The hottest air temperature ever recorded in Death Valley was 134 °F (56.7 °C) on July 10, 1913, at Furnace Creek, which is the hottest atmospheric temperature ever recorded on earth.
