A photograph of the Milky Way reflected in the ephemeral lake currently filling the salt pan or playa in the Black Rock Desert. Even with the mining town of Sulfur near by the sky is dark enough to see airglow, visible on the horizon as rainbow colors. This desert is home to the annual Burning Man Festival, an event that showcases the many uses for our public lands. The town of Gerlach is visible as the glow on the far right.
