Stars, Satellites, and Meteors
With the morning twilight begins to appear in this winter night the Hubble Space Telescope crosses the sky and leaves a faint trail. An Iridium Flare is also captured (middle top) as well as a streaking meteor (right) and stars trails over the western horizon. Click on the second photo to see the meteor in a single-exposure image as appeared above bright star Capella. The picturesque foreground mountain is Damavand, the highest mountain in the Middle East (5610 m) located in Alborz Mountains of Iran. This spectacular volcano is highlighted in the Persian culture and legends. The light of capital Tehran is visible on the left, as well as a mountain road that connects Tehran to the Caspian Sea.
