Mars near its brightest, shining above the badlands of Dinosaur Provincial Park, a World Heritage Site in Alberta, Canada. From the photographer: "The Park is home to the richest collection of late Cretaceous fossils in the world, from about 70 million years ago. Sites up the Red Deer River sample the actual K-Pg boundary... It was a beautiful night. The mosquitoes weren't out yet!" Alan Dyer,
