The core of the milky way above the radar dome in Mt Laguna.

First Contact | The Milky Way over the Mt Laguna FAA Radar Dome

When I see the radar dome in Mt Laguna, I imagine it's there receiving signals sent from a far off alien civilization located light years away in the galaxy.

The dome used to be part of an Airforce Station but the base was abandoned many years ago and most of the buildings were ultimately demolished. Only the dome, which is now operated by the FAA, and few support structures remain.

About the Prints

Edition of 30. Available in the following sizes:

20 x 40 inches

30 x 60 inches

Medium: Archival pigment print with acrylic facemount


This is a pigment print where the front has been directly mounted with an adhesive to a sheet of ultra clear, scratch resistant, and non-reflective acrylic glass. This process is known as face mounting. The acrylic captures light internally resulting in a display with incredible visual depth and vibrancy. With proper lighting, the acrylic print will appear to be back illuminated with the light emanating from the image itself. The print comes ready to hang with a hidden mount on the back that floats the print off the wall.

Please allow 4-5 weeks for production and delivery of your print. The prices include U.S. shipping, please contact me for international rates.
