The Colosseum and the Stars
This image shows the stars trailing above the Colosseum, in Rome. Orion and surrounding should be easy to recognize. Airplanes are joining the view, too.
With this image we want to show that looking at the stars is still a rewarding activity also from big cities! Keeping alive the memory and the beauty of the sky is the first step to win against light pollution!
