A "trio" of Mars, Saturn and bright star Spica is imaged over a historic monument in Delhi center. From the photographer: "Monsoon time in Delhi often brings very clear nights. But they come unannounced and you can rarely plan for them much in advance. This was one of those rare clear and transparent nights of Delhi. The star trail image is build up using over 200 exposures of 5 seconds each. Transparent sky allowed to capture many other stars, even with such a short exposure, not normally imaged from a location in downtown Delhi. In the foreground is Gurdwara Bangla Sahib, the most prominent Sikh house of worship in Delhi, originally a bungalow belonging to Raja Jai Singh, the Astronomer Raja."
