Milky way at Ocean’s Edge! They say the edge of the ocean is strange and beautiful place. For some it’s just a view of the open ocean; for others it’s the sight and sound of the waves crashing against the shore. For me, it’s that moment at dark when milky way is high in the sky and I’m standing at the edge of the ocean gazing at the eternal world of stars and waters. That night somewhere on the Ocean drive at Acadia National Park, I stopped to look around. Night sky was lit up with million stars and they met in ethereal union with the ocean waves. Like as if the stars danced in perfect harmony with its reflection on the silent waves of the ocean. The view was truly spectacular. #yourshotphotographer #astrophotography #thegreatmilkywaychase #milkywaychasers #night_excl #nightscaper #longexpoelite #universetoday #earthcapture #epic_captures #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #idadarksky #acadianationalpark #longexposure_shots #adventureenthusiasts #universe_dope #eclectic_shotz #visitmaine #maine_igers #night4view #nights_dreamworld #fantastic_universe #earthofficial #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #nightphotography #starrynight #earth_shotz

On the shores of the cosmic world! I stood in awe hearing the ocean waves crash against the rocks at Acadia National Park in Maine. The view of endless expanse of water, with a faint horizon that cannot tell where the ocean ends and where the sky begins. As the sun dropped beyond the horizon, millions of stars scattered in the night sky like it was some kind of a painting on a large canvas. There was nothing but distant howling of foxes, sound of the roaring waves and the smell of the ocean breeze. Yet, I stood there at the edge of the ocean for long hours gazing at the celestial river as it swung across the night sky. A truly astonishing moments of cosmic wonders at the Atlantic shores. #milkywaychasers #thegreatmilkywaychase #yourshotphotographer #nationalparkgeek #universetoday #night_excl #nightscaper #longexpoelite #earthcapture #idadarksky #natgeoyourshot #acadianationalpark #weownthenight #westbysouthwest #adventureenthusiasts #maine #longexposure_shots #universetoday #universe_dope #eclectic_shotz #night4view #findyourpark #nights_dreamworld #astrophotography #astrophotos #ig_color #ig_maine #natgeotravel #nightskyphotography #visitmaine #maine_igers

Make a night-sky connection by trying to spot the "young" moon 🌒 This has long been a fun pastime among amateur astronomers: How soon after New Moon can you spot the waxing crescent? Use a sky app to locate the moon as it sets in the west and try to find the lovely thin crescent. Binoculars can really help. This can be a challenge as the moon disappears behind our generally "not-flat" horizons here in Colorado. Noting the beauty of the phases of the moon each month helps us to appreciate our night skies and gives us a wonderful connection to the rhythm of our planetary system. Try it the next two nights! #idadarksky #youngmoon #moongazing #darkskies

I am still geeking out that I saw the Milky Way AND was actually able to get a decent photo of it (!!!) 💫🌙⭐️ We also saw Saturn, the International Space Station, some shooting stars, and another galaxy (that one required a telescope). I really never thought I was especially into astronomy and space until I started spending time in Dark Sky Parks—where the light pollution is so minimal that you can actually see all of the epic things in the night sky clearly. All of these places offer free nighttime programs, like full moon hikes and telescope sessions with a park ranger. 🔭 Also I don’t really have the right photography equipment or skills to take night sky photos which is why I am so psyched that I was able to get a shot that may not be perfect but still looks cool!! Ok, I’m done, now go out and do some stargazing yourselves, people. It’s pretty dope 🌟🌟🌟 #capitolreefnationalpark #capitolreefnps #utah #nationalpark #idadarksky

I took these photos a number of years ago on my first solo backpacking trip. This is Glacier Lake in Banff National Park. It was a beautiful place to camp for a couple of days and even though I was backpacking alone, I met a number of pleasant and interesting people also camping at the lake. . The second photo is my first-ever attempt at making a star trails photo. As you can see when I combined 100+ images into one, the star trails did not come out completely straight. It was a combination of putting the tripod on a rocky shoreline and using a GorillaPod - great for some purposes, but not as good for star trails! It was still fun to see how the star trails turned out; I enjoyed seeing the star trail reflections in the lake. And I learned a lot on this first attempt that made the second attempt much more successful! 📷:Alison 📍Ancestral lands of the Blackfoot, Tsuu T’ina, Kelly Lake Metis Settlement Society, and Ktunaxa people. #banffnationalpark #lakesofinstagram #parkscanada #mountainadventures #mountainadventure #mountainphotography #alpinelake #lakereflection #themountainsarecalling #nightskyphotography #twanight #startrails #startrail #startrailchasers #nightscaper #astro_photography #astrophotos #idadarksky #longexposureshots #longexposhots #longexposures #womanphotographer ©️2019 Alison Mehravari

Andromeda and the Cygnus region of the Milky Way overhead on a summer night in Algonquin Park.

Reach for the stars! Looking out into the universe through the natural arch in Utah was such a spectacular experience. Night was serene and Milky way was rising in the darkest hour of the night. I took the moment to sit down at the base of the Turret Arch and view the universe through a whole new window. Nature’s own. Radiant and ecstatic! Such a special cosmic perspective where you can gaze at the sky and reach for the star. In the image, it’s @rileybregar held captive to the night sky view.

“Take the day and leave us the moon. ‘carpe noctum’ and we will seize the night” . Ever since I read about International Dark Sky Parks, I knew I wanted to visit one. Luckily, there was no moon on this night and you could see the Milky Way with the naked eye. I found a lot of patience working with a tripod and a long-exposure; every plane or satellite flying by would require a retake, but I was able to get a few good shots. Afterwards, I put the camera away, laid back and enjoyed the view for awhile. 🌌🖤 . #bucketlist #idadarksky #milkyway #stars #stargazing #astrophotography #findyourpark #sony #sonyalpha

✨🌌✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Despite the heat advisory for the desert, @leavethefamiliar and I headed out to Anza Borrego on Friday night to chase the Milky Way and do some stargazing. When we arrived to our campsite, it was 102* 🥵, the low that night was a brisk 86* but it was mostly in the 90's. If it hadn't been windy we would have been in for a much more sweaty night. Though the wind did prevent us from setting up our tent and forced us to use our 4 runner as a wind blocker so we could sleep outside. 😂🤣 Swipe through to see where we slept. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I couldn't believe just how bright the stars were. the Milky Way created a distinct arch across the sky right above our head. We saw shooting stars and countless satellites. Did you know Anza is designated an International Dark Sky Place? This makes it a prime spot to stargaze. watch my anza highlights for more about this trip. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I learned a great deal more about astrophotography since my Channel Islands trip. The most helpful thing I learned was that in order to help reduce noise in your photo, you can do a thing called photo stacking. This is the process where you take multiple images with all the same settings and same subject. Then when you edit them you can use software, like Starry Landscape Stacker, to average out the noise in the image. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sony a6500 Rokinon 12mm at f/2.0 15-second exposure ISO 3200 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 10 images stacked using #starrylandscapestacker with final edits in @lightroom. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sony #bealpha #sonyalpha #sonyworldclub #rokinon #landscape_lovers #milkyway #milkywayshooters #darkskyshots #thegreatmilkywaychase #nights_dreamworld #nightsky #night_captures #dreamworldimages #longexposhots #starrynight #nightskyphotography #astro_photography_ #marvelshots #san_diego #california #optoutside #visitcalifornia #castateparks #idadarksky

A shy Milky Way and low clouds... Straight out of the Nikon D850 Timelapse Movie mode (except for the cropping and a little shadow lifting).

Thanks to all who came out for our IDA Colorado chapter meeting and star party! A big shout-out to Annie and Staunton State Park for hosting, and chapter members for their contributions. #idadarksky #stauntonstatepark #starparty #protectthenightsky #getoutside #internationaldarkskyassociation

How do you measure the darkness of the sky? You hold a little meter above your head and it spits out a number! The higher the number, the darker the sky! Rainbow Bridge National Monument, mainly accessible by boat, is where we conducted the survey. These photos show us (two rangers, a VIP, and myself) boating and hiking into the national monument and monitoring the dark sky. With light pollution becoming a bigger issue in the world, preserving our dark skies is important to habitat and human health. You can find more information at darksky.org or @idadarksky 🌌 That concludes my week of instagram! Thank you for following me on my week of adventures at Glen Canyon! #glencanyon #rainbowbridge #npsvolunteer #idadarksky

The Gran Telescopio Canarias with Milky Way, it is one of the world's most powerful telescopes, sits atop an extinct volcano on La Palma, Canary Islands. #idadarksky #darksky #lightpollution #milkyway #milkywaychasers #astrophotography #astrophoto #starphotography #planetearth #astrophotographer #galaxy #astronomy #nightscape #nightscaper #milkywaygalaxy #milkywayphotography#lapalma

The Big Dipper (US), or The Plough (UK) is one of the most easily recognisable asterisms in the night sky. It is a part of Ursa Major constellation as known as the Great Bear. You can also see a falling Perseid meteor on this picture. 🤗 ✨⭐✨⭐✨🌠🔭🌌🚀📷📡🛰️🇵🇱 For more photos of a night sky please see link in bio 😉 It's not easy to find unpolluted by the light place in the middle of Europe. #savethenightsky @idadarksky _ Shot on #nikond750 Camera: Nikon D750 with Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8 Exposure time 20,0sec at f/2.8 at focal length 24mm ISO 800 . @nikon_pl @nikoneurope @nikonusa @nikonjp @nikonphotocontest _ Edited with @lightroom _ #thebigdipper #urasamajor #thegreatbearconstellation #asterism #perseids #wielkiwóz #meteor #europe #zachodniopomorskie #polska #poland #idadarksky #savethenightsky #starrysky #nightscaper #igworldclub_astrophotography #universetoday #universe #astronomy #night_shooterz #nightskyphotography #milkywaygalaxy #earthpics #travel #astro_photography_ #igers_szczecin #polandphotos #nikon

The Milky Way rises over a logging chute in Algonquin Park. Chutes were used to transport heavy logs all the way to the Ottawa River during the 19th century.

“Milky way core and Jupiter from the Green river in @dinosaurnps. Jupiter is the bright spot low on the right, at the edge of the canyon wall. After leaving behind my tripod mount I had to borrow another and improvise to document the amazing dark, star-filled skies above our campground. This was a SW view down the canyon around 10 PM, just before moonrise. Dinosaur National Monument is a certified Dark Sky Place by @idadarksky, which is one of the reasons I went there for this trip of a lifetime. This was our first campsite on my Green river trip with @oars_rafting and we had a great time. I can definitely recommend them to anyone of any ability for a great river trip.” — Repost from @scott.thomason.photo

一起來檢查👀你家馬路旁的街燈,光源除了照向地面,還去了哪裡呢?🤔 . 城市裡的人造光源,不同波長的光線會前往很多方向,有些光線逸散到鄰居家窗前、散射到了天空、有些遇到空氣中懸浮顆粒導致光的散射,又再反射回到地面,逐漸形成了看夜景時會看到、壟罩城市上端的霞光或稱天空輝光(skyglow) 是的,霞光就是光害現象,因此戶外燈具設計&燈泡選用&使用方法很重要喔! 歡迎分享/Repost if you love💕 Follow us @hehuan_mountain_DSP for more photo credit: IDA(International Dark-sky Association) What directions will lights go when it out of a street lamp? Light comes out of the bulb and can go: 1. Straight-up 2. Up at an angle 3. Up and be reflected back down 4. down then reflected up 5. effectively blocking the view of telescopes Yes it is, skyglow is light pollution. So outdoor lighting design, light bulbs selection and the way of use is the matter!💪🏽 learn more about ida @idadarksky #idadarksky #hehuan #hehuanshan #streetlamps #concepts #ourselves #lightingdesign #outdoorlights #outdoorlighting #matter #proper #choose #hmdsp #合歡山 #暗空公園

Had been to this cute place two years ago and planing to have a Milky Way shot in the future. This summer, it was done! But it’s not the image in my mind. I guess I’ll give it a go one more time.🤷🏻‍♀️

The flickering is killing me but I couldn’t find a way to get rid of it. So, here you go...
