There’s a short time twenty to thirty minutes after sunset where something magical happens to Uluru.
The combination of darkening sky and the spreading yellow glow of the horizon lights the land in a deep orange glow and makes the rock look like it’s glowing from within.
So many people had packed up and headed back for their evening’s creature comforts.
Those they stayed after dark and until the stars came out got to see something special.
