Constellation Orion and star Sirius trail above the historic Indreshwar temple in Panauti of Nepal. Two planes has crossed the field, but more interesting are two shorter streaks at the left and right edges of the images which are both bright meteors captured in the low-sensitive film used by the photographer for this three-hour photographic exposure. The Indreshwar wooden monument is one of the largest and tallest pagoda style temples in Nepal originally built in 1294, making it the oldest surviving temple of the country. Oshin Zakarian/
