Featured Image for Snow at Atacama Desert

Snow at Atacama Desert

As one of the most arid places on Earth with less than ten millimetres of precipitation per year and humidity that often drops below 10%, the Atacama Desert gets over 300 clear nights every year — which is great for the European Southern Observatory. Surprisingly, while the desert is extremely dry, it gets snow for a couple of days every year. Stéphane Guisard took this picture: evidence that snow has dusted the desert landscape. Wow.
