Trails on the Earth and Sky

By: Amir H. Abolfath


Region: Middle East

Site: Alborz Mountains - Iran


The rotation of the Earth causes all celestial objects to move in the sky. This scene of startrails has recorded a 2-hour rotation of the sky, as seen above Alborz Mountains and Haraz valley in Iran. The road in Haraz (tracked by light of passing cars) connects Tehran and Caspian Sea. Part of Tehran light dome is visible on the right end while Caspian seaside towns caused the illumination at the left end. Amir Abolfath -
