In a clear summer night of Mount Uludag in Turkey, The Milky Way begins to appear in the fading twilight. On the right close to the horizon the young Moon is paired with Venus (the second brightest object in the night sky). To the upper left of the pair is Planet Saturn. Click on the constellation icon above the image to see a closer view of the crescent moon and the two planets at this moment. Tunc Tezel
