The crescent Moon sets in the western horizon of Alborz Mountains of Iran. Lights of a mountainous village is visible in far, while bright planet Venus is shining above the Moon. Note the two "stars" that form a small triangle with Venus. They are planets Mars and Saturn as captured in the triple planetary conjunction of August 2010.
