A Starry Night

From the photographer: "Inviting a friend to a stargazing trip is always a little risky, dealing with the low temperature and end up with a cloudy night without the promising beautiful night sky. Luckily the sky kept clear for half of the night when I asked my friend to go with me. The two setting yellow stars are Mars and the brightest star of Scorpion: Antares, whose name comes from the Greek word Άντάρης. It means equal to Mars for its reddish appearance, which is similar to Mars."
