Region: Europe

Site: Euboea - Greece

As seen on the National Geographic News, stars wheel above a Byzantine-era castle on the Greek island of Euboea. The North Star, Polaris, anchors the star trail to the left. From the photographer: "One of the many castles which characterize Greece's second largest island is the medieval hilltop Fyllon, built by the Venetians in the 13th century and is widely associated with the Venetian knight Licario who sought and virtually managed to conquer all of Euvoia (Euboea) on behalf of Michael VIII Palaiologos, Byzantine Emperor of the time (1259-1282). He lived in the castle to the end of his life." Anthony Ayiomamitis, Perseus.gr
