From the photographer: "A bright meteor is captured with the morning Star (Venus) through the autumn clouds. Below Venus, two other planets are in conjunction, the giant Jupiter and the mysterious Mars. The photo was taken in the morning twilight from an old caravansary named Jelodar, 120km northwest of Isfahan, Iran, belongs to Safavid era (Tahmasp king). This monument has been exposed to destruction because of erosion and rainfall and unfortunately hasn't paid necessary attention to it's repair and maintenance. The caravansary is on the old road between Alavijeh to Golpayegan along the silk Road."
