Lone Goblin under the Milky Way

Goblin Valley State Park, Utah

The rock formations of Goblin Valley are old.  The hoodoos are thought to be ~20 millions years old and composed of rock that is closer to 165 million years old.  The Milky Way shining above the hoodoo in this photo, though, is much older; the best estimates of modern cosmology put it at about 13.2 billion years old, just half a billion years younger than the universe itself.

This photograph was one of 50 chosen for the Utah Wilderness 50 exhibition, a celebration at the Natural History Museum of Utah of the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Wilderness Act. Photo © copyright by Greg Owens.
