Lighting up the Desert

This is an art installation in Australia called Field of Light:

It opened on April 1 and is situated near Uluru, that sacred monument of red sandstone rising out of the desert in the Northern Territory. The lights are powered by solar panels and are turned on for several hours twice a day, dawn and dusk.
