Glory of the Night


Image credit & copyright: Morteza Safataj.

Here’s an incredible image to take with you into the weekend by Morteza Safataj. In this image we have the Milky Way standing nearly vertical over the travertine terraces of Badab Sourt’s natural hot springs in Mazandaran Province, Iran.  The perfectly calm waters of the spring create a canvas on which our home star city can reflect its stars to be captured by our eyes and distributed to our emotions.

This location is just as beautiful in the daylight as it is at night and its one of the few places on Earth where locations of this size can be seen. I hope you all enjoy this image, check out more of Morteza’s work and have a great weekend!
