The Imilac strewn field was first discovered by Westerners in 1822, and is located in the Atacama Desert of Chile. The Atacama is said to be the second driest region in the world (Antarctica being the driest), and is extremely desolate, being located on the leeward side of Chile's coastal mountain range. The rain gauge at Calama has reportedly never received any measurable precipitation. The Atacama is a high desert with many regions over 8000 feet in elevation. This makes it unlike many other deserts in that it is a cold desert, with average temperatures ranging from 0° to 25° Celsius (32° to 75° F).
