Lion in the Desert Sky   -  By: Babak A. Tafreshi

In a starry night of central Iran desert, Saturn (the brightest point) appears in constellation Leo. Bright blue star Regulus at the Lion's heart is the second brightest point. The small pale green elongated halo below Regulus is the comet Lulin (C/2007 N3). Near the image top is the Beehive star cluster or M44. A Tamarix shrub (salt cedar) appears on the sand dune.
