Chaharshanbe Suri, also widely known as the Persian Festival of Fire, is an Iranian festival celebrated on the eve of the last Wednesday before Nowruz. This Year, i took this photograph of the Moon and Jupiter in conjunction with Iranian culture! i was passing these kind people in my car, they had a fire and they were celebrating, i just asked them if i can stay with them for a couple of minutes and they agreed! believe me, you've got to visit Iran!
