Milky Way over the Alborz Mountains. View of the Milky Way arching above the Alborz Mountain Range, bordering the Caspian Sea, Iran. Mount Davand volcano, the highest peak in the Middle East (5610 metres) is at left. The Milky Way is our galaxy seen from within, which makes it appear as a band of light crossing the sky. In places, dark clouds of dust block the light from the stars behind.
