Under dark starry sky bright stars of winter and the Milky Way are captured from a small village. Notable in the background sky are Sirius (the brightest star at the lower left), a streaking meteor at the lower left, prominent constellation Orion (in the middle), the V-figure of Taurus and Pleiades star cluster, and bright star Capella near the top.
