in Port Augusta

Hey, what's that bizarre glowing tower just off the highway 10km south of Port Augusta? It's part of a giant greenhouse tomato-growing facility: hundreds of mirrors reflect sunlight (of which Port Augusta has a boundless supply) onto the tower, which heats and desalinates water whilst producing 1.5 megawatts of electricity. Don't ask us to explain the technology any further – just enjoy the spectacle of this unexpected object!
