Theme Thursday - Light
The 50 foot Star Tower along Estrella Parkway was designed as a spiral configuration, resembling the shape of the Milky Way constellation topped off with a rusted steel sail. The tower was built as a tribute to the many cultures that have studied the desert night sky.
The tower twinkles with light at night, and the spiral staircase and viewing platform give an amazing 360-degree view of the city skyline and the night sky. Several star-gazing events have been held at the tower. This is where Magpie and I have unsuccessfully tried to photograph the moon rising above the mountains the past few days. As you can see, the monsoon clouds have rolled in.
