Night sky over the Himalayas. Triple montage of the starry sky over Mount Everest in the Himalayas (left), with the constellations shown at centre (lines) and at right (mythological figures). The snow-capped mountains in the background are: Mount Everest (left), Mount Lhotse (centre), and Ama Dablam (right). Also visible at lower left is a stupa that is located on the main trek to the Everest Base Camp. The bright star Capella, in the constellation of Auriga, is above the saddle between Everest and Lohtse. The constellations Perseus (centre) and Andromeda (top) are further up. The light on the ground at bottom centre is the Tengboche Buddhist monastery (elevation: 3867 metres). Images obtained in November 2009, from Sagarmatha National Park, Nepal.
