This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile139/Ayers-Rock-(Uluru).htm>Ayers Rock (Uluru)</a></b><br><br>Uluru is notable for appearing to change colour as the different light strikes it at different times of the day and year, with sunset a particularly remarkable sight. The rock is made of sandstone infused with minerals like feldspar (Arkosic sandstone) that reflect the red light of sunrise and sunset, making it appear to glow. The rock gets its rust color from oxidation.<br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/071005/ayers_rock.jpg>
