Night Sky Panorama-Bonneville Salt Flats-3D Panorama The Bonneville Salt Flats are a striking sight in daytime. At night the feel can be otherworldly. The darkness of Utah's West Desert is punctuated here by a lone interstate highway and the town of Wendover, which provides illumination for the salt floor without overpowering the night sky. The green glow along the horizon is from distant mercury vapor lighting in the Salt Lake City area, while the orange glow is from high pressure sodium vapor lighting. Photographed about an hour earlier, the salt flats at dusk displays the surface texture of this expanse in a different light (literally!).
Explore the World of Musical Instruments Around the world, the culture of music has developed over many centuries. Integral to that development has been its tools: musical instruments. Musical instruments play an important part not only in art, but also in many other social contexts, such as religion, the military, celebrations and ceremony. This is reflected not just in the sounds they produce but also in their design and purpose. What are Playlists? How do I make them? Playlists are sets or "albums" that you can create with your own sounds or other people's sounds on SoundCloud. To curate a playlist, click on ‘Add to playlist’ below any sound- your own or someone else's- to place it into a playlist. To create a new playlist, click the 'Create New' playlist tab.
