Night Life

As if you needed another reason to visit Utah, here’s an amazing image from Manish Mamtani of a friend, Sanket Kolhe reflecting on the Milky Way galaxy which itself is reflecting on the legendary Bonneville Salt Flats. Well, legendary if you’re a race fan because for decades during the summer when the water has dried, this has been one of the major proving grounds for people from all around the world to test their nerves and equipment to reach the highest speeds on land.

Aside from the mass of stars and the disk of our home star city, what else can we see here in this image? Yea, that’s right, that beautiful and awe inspiring trio of Mars, Saturn and Antares just right of the galactic core.  You may not have a view quite like this but if you have a clear south/southeast horizon the trio is still putting on quite a show.
