When I founded The World at Night (TWAN) project 12 years ago with an international team of highly experienced night sky photographers, one of the main aims was to save the last remaining natural night skies on the planet by photos and stories that tell the values of this essential part of our nature, beyond being an astronomer’s laboratory. This is one of those places: La Palma, Canary Islands, where the night sky is protected by law, against light pollution; the extra careless light that doesn’t illuminates the ground but wastes to the sky. The locals appreciate this preserved heritage too which made their island an icon.
Here the Milky Way’s bright core rises over salt production ponds next to the ocean, in a single 20-second exposure photograph. This resembles what I was able to see visually there, but without the Milky Way’s color.

Before we invented civilization our ancestors lived mainly in the open out under the sky. Before we devised artificial lights and atmospheric pollution and modern forms of nocturnal entertainment we watched the stars. There were practical calendar reasons of course but there was more to it than that. Even today the most jaded city dweller can be unexpectedly moved upon encountering a clear night sky studded with thousands of twinkling stars. When it happens to me after all these years it still takes my breath away. (Carl Sagan,"Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of The Human Future In Space") Nikon D750 + sigma 20mm

Find yourself in the stars

In frame: Hiba & @isaactsetan looking up at the stars in Ladakh during last year's Perseid meteor shower. Gotta thank you Isaac, once again, for being a sport and driving us 100's of kilometers around Ladakh so we could shoot from the right locations.

The last rays of the day transform this gorgeous landscape. New Zealand has created some awesome cycle trails around the country. We had huge ambitions to cover most of the South Island but then we spent so much time eating date balls, taking photos, and enjoying fish and chips that we didn’t get as far as we hoped (plus I was pregnant). But we were greeted by wonderful hospitality, loads of lambs, and really delightful riding. We merged the Round the Mountain, Roxburgh Gorge Trail, Clutha Gold Trail, Otaga Central Rail Trail and the Alps to Ocean, but by far our favorite ride was a connector trail in the Oteake Reserve. There are about 40 river crossings, gorgeous vistas and even a couple of huts where you can spend the night but our preference was always wild camping with the stars over our heads (scroll 👈🏼). We will definitely be back with Baby A, it’s a great destination for family cycling.

Joshua Tree National Park at Night

A moonless night at Joshua Tree National Park. I climbed to the top of the rock with all camera gears, and this shot is totally worth all the struggle. The thin high altitude clouds create a silky smooth effect to the image. (Plz don’t go there during government shutdown)

EXIF:
Sky: Canon 6D 24mm f/1.4 10s ISO6400 * 10 images average (no tracker)
Ground: 24mm f/2.8 71s ISO3200 .

A crown is forming in the clear sky above this Arctic land. This is the most fantastic form of aurora, appearing overhead with fast moving rays and shapes. A crown appears for a few minutes only but lasts a very long time in your memory!
Typical green light of aurora is caused by solar particles colliding oxygen in Earth outer atmosphere, 100-300km above us. The purple is by particles that reach lower where nitrogen exist.

Fantastic image of the crescent moon partially blocked by a rock formation in Utah, 🇺🇸, captured by @babaktafreshi
.
“Known as the Balanced Rock near Moab in Utah, the exotic formation sits under the rising crescent moon in this single-exposure photograph. Note the Earthshine light also known as Da Vinci Glow. About 500 years ago he described it as sunlight reflected from the Earth shining on the night side of the moon.
Swipe left to see the rock in daytime. At 128 feet (39 m) height, it’s the size of a 12-story building.

**توضیحاتی درباره عکس برای دوستان علاقه مند
تصویری که می بینید حدود نیم ساعت بعد از غروب خورشید و تقریبا ساعت آبی یا بلوتایم گرفته شده.این تصویر پانوراما تمام محیط قابل مشاهده در محل را به شما نشان میدهد. در غرب یعنی سمت راست کادر رنگ نارنجی غروب و ماه را در آسمان و شرق یعنی سمت چپ کادر طلوع جبار و قبل از آن پروین را می بینید.
برای عکاسی از این صحنه به دلیل تعداد شات زیاد پنجاه عددی به تاخیر زمانی تاریک شدن هوا بعد از غروب بر خوردم که با افزایش یک استاپی ایزو در هر شات برطرف شد. تنها ویرایش عکس دو تغییر نور کرو و افزایش بیست درصدی رنگ بر روی فایل تیف خروجی پی تی است.
(استفاده از مقادیر و واژه های تقریبی به دلیل زمان دوازده دقیقه ای عکاسی این کادر است).

Mineral Moon. Swipe left for annotations (craters: black, mares: white). 📷: Chirag, @tinchu_chi .
.
Lunar color is a subtle, yet fascinating phenomenon. If we exaggerate it’s colors it reveals the colorful composition on the lunar surface. These differences are because of chemical components of the lunar surface, due to remixing caused by asteroidal impacts or from lava effusions from it’s mantle. The ‘seas’ or mares on the lunar surface are less reflective, darker regions with volcanic origins. The dark Mare Tranquillitatis on the eastern near side is a noticeably darker and “bluish-gray” compared to the dark mare plains just to the north in Mare Serenitatis that has a red hue. The blue color comes from titanium deposits primarily found as the mineral ilmenite, a titanium iron oxide compound, while the red is region rich in iron oxide.

Swipe left: Impact craters show white lines like those which radiate from the crater Tycho at bottom left, while purplish tones mottle the crater Copernicus left of center.
