Monday Geology Picture: Namibian Night Sky
Posted by Evelyn Mervine
My husband and I spent some time doing field work in the Sperrgebiet region of Namibia earlier this year. We camped out in the desert for a few days. We spent our days looking at some fantastic geology, and we spent our nights looking at some fantastic views of the night sky. We were quite far from any towns, so we had very little light pollution and could see many stars. We bought a fancy(ish) camera earlier this year, and my husband has been playing around with taking shots of the night sky. Above is one image that he took during our recent field work up in Namibia.
