Milky Way – A lost Candle in the Desert of Death Valley

| | | |

Zabriskie Point is a 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.During the heat wave that peaked with that record, five consecutive days reached 129 °F (54 °C) or above. In the center of the image, the core of Milky Way is shinning so bright, that creates the illusion like if it was enough to illuminate the right top of the mountain range from Zabriskie point. Although, the mountain was actually and momently illuminated by a car light that was passing by.
