Region: Middle East

Site: Mount Damavand - Iran



Northern stars trail around the north celestial pole, with Polaris or the North Star located very close to the pole at the upper right. Rest under the rotating sky is Mount Damavand; one of the most spectacular live volcanoes on the Earth at top altitude of 5610 meters. It has been a legendary mountain in Persian culture.
