In a clear winter night of village in Alborz Mountain range of Iran, stars of the prominent constellation Orion rises above snow-covered peaks. The V figure of constellation Taurus (the Bull) is higher up, just above the passing cloud. Look more upward to find the Pleiades or the Seven Sister star cluster. Oshin Zakarian/
