Region: Middle East

Site: Alborz Mountains - Iran

Date: 2010 January 3

The sky gets suddenly clear in this January evening, after a snowstorm in Alborz Mountains some kilometers north of Tehran. The summer stars sets in the west (left) while the winter stars with the prominent constellation Orion rise above the east (right). The arc of the Milky Way is also visible in this late twilight panorama. Note a meter streak, belongs to the Quadrantid Meteor Shower, which is captured near the upper edge of the image.
