Bodie artifacts showcased against the glow of "Belt of Venus".
Bodie, a town frozen in time, preserved in a state of arrested decay. The “Belt of Venus” is an atmospheric phenomenon that creates a pink band in the sky at sunrise and sunset. It is actually the area between Earth’s shadow and the blue sky.
