Ivanpah Solar Array

I've been working in California for the last few weeks.  I drove through Las Vegas on my way there and stopped just across the California state line at the Ivanpah Solar Array.  Fascinating, amazing, beautiful.  

There are three massive fields of mirrors which reflect sunlight up onto collection towers where the heat is collected and used to vaporize water to power generators.  (At least that's how I understand it.)  

Ivanpah solar array, mirror patterns.
