Standing on a high pole, you observe,
Falling down badly, do you accept?,
Flying above the clouds, you deserve,
Crawling on the ground, do you accept?,
Running endlessly for hours, you exhale,
Stopped by obstacles, do you accept?,
Always wishing to win, you prevail,
Failed by “almost”, do you accept?,
Dreaming of becoming an icon, you sleep,
Waking up to reality, do you accept?,
Searching ‘out’ for answers, you go deep,
Finding within yourself, do you accept?,
Doubting every word, you question,
Questioning yourself, do you accept?,
Building an object, you go for precision,
Errors in skill, do you accept?,
Framing out conclusions, you are relevant,
Hearing the odds, do you accept?,
Creating new ideas, you are intelligent,
Lacking the space to put it in, do you accept?,
Thinking of good for all, you are kind,
Finding yourself rejected, do you accept?,
Breathing slowly, you relax your mind,
Realizing the truth, do you accept?,
Learning with curiosity, you are glad,
Drowning in doubts, do you accept?,
Losing someone special, you are sad,
Ready to move on, do you accept?,
Of all that you see is good in you, you accept,
Ignoring the other side that’s hard to expect,
Fake percept and unstable concept, you respect,
But the reality of life, DO YOU ACCEPT???

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.

“The surface of the Earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean. On this shore, we’ve learned most of what we know. Recently, we’ve waded a little way out, maybe ankle-deep, and the water seems inviting. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return, and we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We’re made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.”
Carl Sagan, Cosmos, 1980
