Sky Gazers : A Timelapse Tribute
The night sky is perhaps the most enchanting love one can ever find.
The evening twilight gently fades in to darkness. Clouds begin to scatter away and I’m under an ocean of twinkling stars. Another night of pure enjoyment and cosmic adventures. The night sky is perhaps the most enchanting love one can ever find!
This timelapse production is a tribute to all skygazers around the world who enjoy exploring the night sky with their telescopes. I’m happy to release this in April 2012 in celebration of the Global Astronomy Month (gam-awb.org), an international program of Astronomers Without Borders in partnership with world-wide astronomy centers and clubs.
I (Babak A. Tafreshi) made the footage and images between 2007 and 2011 in various locations in Iran, La Palma (Canary Islands), Austria, Germany, and Nepal. Some of the sequences are made during star parties, and observing competitions such as Messier Marathon where a large group of amateur astronomers observe the night sky together.
