Located in the North Edwards Air Force Base area on Highway 58 in the Mojave Desert, the long ago abandoned Little Red Barn restaurant features a mural of the Space Shuttle landing, July 4, 1982. This 18 minute exposure is a composite of three 6 minute shots. A flashlight was used to illuminate the mural and sign.

Update: Sometime between November 2010 and February 2011 the restaurant burned down. The sign and gas station remain as of May, 2011.
