Nazca - The Astronaut by TarJakArt Nazca - The Astronaut by TarJakArt
In the Peruvian Desert, about 200 miles south of Lima, there lies a plain between the Inca and Nazca (sometimes also spelled Nasca) Valleys. Across this plain, in an area measuring 37 miles long and 1-mile wide, is an assortment of perfectly-straight lines, many running parallel, others intersecting, forming a grand geometric form. In and around the lines there are also trapezoidal zones, strange symbols, and pictures of birds and beasts all etched on a giant scale that can only be appreciated from the sky.

While visiting Peru last month I was lucky enough to have the opportunity for a flight over the area.

This is the Astronaut.  I wonder whether he's waving hello or goodbye?
