Nightsky Glory and Sasanid Era

Sasanian architecture hit a peak in its development during the Sassanid era. In many ways the Sasanian Empire period (224-651 CE) witnessed the highest achievement of Persian civilization, and Organize the last great pre-Islamic Persian Empire before the Muslim conquest. As a matter of fact, part of Sasanian architecture was adopted by Muslims and became part of Islamic architecture.

Almost 1700 years passed from the year which this Sassanid Palace were built In addition I tried to show mesmerizing night sky above this Historical Monument.

Sassanid Palace located in 90 km southeast of Shiraz. Historical City in Iran and one of the well-known tourism destination.

Light pollution is known as destructive kind of barrier not to let us see the night sky in a same way that our ancestors saw it.

Light pollution were added by human right to the night sky In addition this kind of pollution has different devastated effect on different kind of species on the planet.

The increased and widespread use of artificial light at night is not only impairing our view of the universe, it is adversely affecting our environment, our safety, our energy consumption and our health.

I would have taken this photo in north part of Iran where stars drown in artificial light produced by humans.
