Capturing a View of the Antelope Valley’s Superbloom of Poppies




As Glenn Graham, director of NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center’s Office of Safety and Mission Assurance flew his T-34 aircraft over California’s Antelope Valley, he beheld a once in a lifetime event–a superbloom of a superbloom of poppies and wildflowers.

Due to a very rainy winter season for the Antelope Valleya, the desert is covered with a canopy of yellow wildflowers and orange blooming poppies, California’s state flower. NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center employees and families could see the flowers by parking at the Poppy Reserve.

The T-34 is used by the center for pilot proficiency and chase plane for research flights.d cosmonauts can be viewed at the NASA/JSC Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth.
