Sierra Starlight at the South Lake Tahoe Library

Tony Rowell will present a slideshow of his beautiful, compelling “astrophotographs” of night time landscapes awash with light from the cosmos. The Milky Way illuminates a fleet of boats in the harbor at Lake Tahoe; the old Methodist church at Bodie looks both inviting and spooky against the expanse of the night. At Mono Lake, spectral tufa towers stretch up to meet Leonid meteors; and farther west, water from Yosemite Falls cascades into a lunar rainbow. After the presentation Tony will be signing copies of his book; his prints will be available for sale as well.

Free and open to the public.
