Khara desert in central part of Iran is a beautiful place to be guest for stars. In this photo, Milky way band is joined by zodiacal light near the planet Venus. Zodiacal light can only be seen in very dark and clear skies. In the west, sky has been lit up by the light pollution of the nearby town, Hasanabad.
