In the Heavens Above   -  By: Babak A. Tafreshi

The night sky above the World Heritage site of Meteora. The Milky Way emerges from light of the nearby town Kalabaka in Thessaly, Greece, in late twilight. Bright star Antares, at the heart of the celestial Scorpion, is on the upper right. Meteora is historic complex of lofty bizarre monasteries which are built on (or inside) giant natural sandstone rock pillars. Some are about a thousand years old. The name Meteora means "middle of the sky" or "in the heavens above". Appear here are the Monastery of Varlaam (closer) and the Monastery of Rousanou.
