Milky Way over Amboy Crater
Amboy Crater is located on old Route 66 in the Mojave desert. It's a volcanic cone and is one of the darkest places close to a road(there's even a bathroom there). The darkness is only broken by the lights of Palm Springs to the south(behind the crater) and the very faint lights of Las Vegas to the northeast. The golden lighter object to the left of the galactic center is a cloud in the sky and the bright "star" is Mars.
