From Mr. Kerns’ description…

"Alta Vista" was the name of a residential development planned for the high desert area just south of Edwards Air Force Base…except it never developed. On the map you can see dirt trails where the streets had been slated, but other than that, it’s pretty much scrub desert stretching away in all directions. The lights on the horizon are at Edwards Air Force Base, former home of the "Right Stuff"-era test pilots, and alternate landing site for the Space Shuttle before it was retired in 2011.
