Dr. Kathy Vivas, CTIO Astronomer, sends us this picture of the Desierto Florido (Flowering Desert) she took today, Aug 21, 2017, on the road to Cerro Tololo and Cerro Pachón.  It shows the varied colors of the blooming flowers that grace the otherwise barren landscape, after this wet 2017 winter season.
