Caption: Timelapse footage of cars on a road in mountains, with stars moving above. Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky, rises in the centre. At left, the planet Mars in the constellation Leo rises around halfway through the clip. As the Moon sets behind the camera, the mountains are plunged into darkness. Filmed in the Alborz Mountains in Iran. The road lies in the Haraz Valley, linking the capital Tehran with the coast of the Caspian Sea. Filmed in December 2011.
