Description:
An iridium satellite flares in the night sky over Alamut Castle in Iran. Found in the central Alborz Mountains, Alamut Castle (2160 m) was built into the rock in the 9th century. The name means Eagle's Nest. Home of the legendary Assassins featured in the adventure movie Prince of Persia, Alamut was also historically a center for libraries and education.
