    Somewhere, years ago, I recall seeing images of kilns that looked similar to you image.  I can't recall if they were used to make charcoal, process limestone, etc.

    I saw this photo last night on bing.com. I know where it is by clicking their info link. But is there a way to figure out the latitude and longitude from the positions of the stars in the photo? I'm thinking about celestial navigation for a class lesson, and I thought I might use this image. Thank you for reading.
