Milky Way over Deadvlei in Namibia

What planet is this? It is the only planet currently known to have trees. The trees in Deadvlei
, though, have been dead for over 500 years. Located in Namib-Naukluft Park
), saplings grew after rainfall caused a local river
to overflow, but died after sand dunes shifted
to section off the river. High above and far in the distance, the band of our Milky Way Galaxy
forms an arch over a large stalk in this well-timed composite image
, taken last month. The soil of white clay
appears to glow by reflected starlight. Rising on the left, under the Milky Way’s arch, is a band of zodiacal light
— sunlight reflected by dust orbiting in the inner Solar System. On the right, just above one ofEarth
‘s larger sand dunes
, an astute eye
can find the Large Magellanic Cloud
, a satellite galaxy of our galaxy. Finding the Small Magellanic Cloud
in the featured image
, though, is perhaps too hard.
