I am waiting next to the Chitgar lake western Tehran, for the waning Gibbous Moon to rise. It is going to have a conjunction by Milad tower. I will capture the scene with my telescope from 15km away.

How human could make the civilizations and build such vast cities. Now Tehran with the population of nearly 13 million is heavily polluted. Minutes and seconds are passing. The barren moon is rising from beyond the haze of civilization…
