Crimson Skies

Crimson Skies

Image Credit & Copyright: ESO/Babak Tafreshi.

Babak Tafreshi captures Christoph Malin imaging the Atacama skies on a cold desert night. This region captures our imaginations and you can almost imagine yourself as a Martian explorer wandering the landscape after we’ve colonized it. The lights of civilization glow from afar and somewhere, up in the night sky would be Earth, our first home masked in the glow of the Milky Way, our star city.

Until the day that becomes reality, we enjoy images like this. Images that can take us from one location and transport us across space and time to somewhere we may in fact, never experience. Once again; just a terrific image as always by the European Southern Observatory (ESO) crew.
