Lights or Stars? Today most city skies have become virtually empty of stars, but there is still places beyond your imagination. Here is the view of Yaqing Monastery, GarzÍ Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan province of China. Reaching 4000m above sea level, it provides superb clear skies. The central bugle of our Milky way galaxy still shines brightly above a sea of lights.
The temple is associated with the Tibetan Buddhism. With more than 30,000 Sangha members now, it is the largest concentration of nuns and monks in the world. Jeff Dai
