Marc Toso of AncientSkys captured this image on March 17, 2019, at Gold Butte National Monument in southeastern Nevada. It was early morning, just as dawn was beginning to break. He said he captured 20 sequential photos to create this composite image, and he wrote:

Illumination - Petroglyphs - Mixture - Sunlight - Starlight

All illumination on the petroglyphs is a mixture of weak sunlight and starlight.

According to the website OutDoorProject.com, the history of the petroglyphs in this region is unknown. But it is known that:

Anasazi - Area - Years - Southern - Paiute

Western Anasazi inhabited this area several thousand years ago, and more recently Southern Paiute Indians traveled through here. The petroglyphs may date anywhere from 700 to several thousand years old.
