IMAGE OF THE WEEK

Alien Life?
Alien Life?
A nighttime view over Badwater, Death Valley, Calif., USA, the lowest point (86 m below sea level) in North America. The “aliens” are actually made from combined exposures of LED lights waved in a more-or-less vertical direction. The base picture is a 15 second exposure with the core of the Milky Way galaxy in view.
