Night shot taken from the summit of mount Chaberton (3,131 m) on
October 20th, 2011.
At the horizon you can see the halo generated by the moon before rising.
A huge bank of clouds and mist was hiding the world below...
Two cities are most visible, respectively on the right: Sestriere
(2.035 m), the main venue during the 2006 Winter Olympic Games, and
Cesana (1.040 m) that shines like a diamond necklace :-)
On top of the mountain between the two cities is visible a tiny dot of light, it's the cable car station Fraiteve (2.702 m).
This is essentially a landscape of clouds and stars, though the
constellations begin to be less visible due to the coming moon...
however in the night sky can still be clearly distinguished a few
constellations: Auriga, Perseus, Aries, Cetus, Pleiades, and, last but
not least, planet Jupiter.
