Panorama by @babaktafreshi
The World at Night program
Swipe left to see this 3-part panorama and the entire image on the slide 4. The Grand Canyon offers extremely dramatic scenes when you catch the right time and light. I was waiting for the moment after sunset. From the west (pic 1) to east (3) the view shows the light of early twilight on the canyon and the blue-purple color of the rising Earth shadow on the right, at the opposite horizon (east). An extinct volcano is also visible near the edge.
At 446 km long the Grand Canyon on the Arizona-Utah border is the longest canyon on Earth (not the deepest), a steep-sided gorge carved by the Colorado River steadily over several million years. Google “dreamview 102813” to see a larger view of the entire panorama and find more @babaktafreshi.
