Caption: Andean ice field at night. Moonlit night on a plateau at an altitude of 5000 metres in the Andes of northern Chile. The Pleiades star cluster is at far left. From left to right, are the constellations Taurus, Orion, and Canis Major. The star Sirius is on the horizon at lower right. In the foreground are nieves penitentes, a snow formation found at high altitudes. These blades of hardened snow or ice are oriented in the general direction of the Sun.
