Venice beach California Sunset Malibu mountains.
"Malibu Sunset"

The setting Sun subsides over the Westside Mountains silhouetting the towers of the former Nike Missile Base and lookout station for Los Angeles, that once kept an eye on and fortified the immediate environment from the period between 1954-1974.

Currently it is a gated residential community with local and long distant communications towers.

Recorded with a 1,000 mm Meade telescope and high resolution digital camera, this image juxtaposes the relationship between Earth, sun and vastness of outer space.
