We Are Not Alone… by Lee’s Dynasty on Flickr.Via Flickr: 500px / Twitter /  G+ 
So, this is the actually shot i got on 1st January 2013 (as opposed to the previous upload, which i wanted to get on the 1st, but ended up getting the next day), There was a crazy amount of fog and you couldn’t see any of the city from False Creek at all.
But! I was determined not to walk away empty handed and ended up with this shot.
The lights from the Telus ‘World of Science’ building gave off a nice glow, and as i couldn’t get anything decent from a distance i decided to get up close and try to be a bit more creative.
Nikon D3100
Kit Lens @ 48mm

A Summer Night’s Dream

Image Credit & Copyright:   Mike Rosinski
 Fix your digital camera to a tripod, start a long series of exposures, and you too can record star trails.  The concentric arcs traced by the stars as planet Earth rotates on its axis often produce dreamlike scenes in otherwise familiar situations.  Fall asleep, though, and the results might surprise you.  Setting up on a summer night, photographer Mike Rosinski began his exposures, initially planning to capture about 45-55 minutes worth of star trails from his yard in Hartland, Michigan, USA.  But he dozed, only to awaken some 3 hours later to find his camera had continued to run until the battery died.  Composing the resulting images, the graceful concentric star trails were expected, along with light from a late rising Moon glinting on windows.  Still, as he slept on the warm night a blizzard of yellow streaks flooded the scene, not left by fairies but fireflies.

A Tale of Two Hemispheres

Image Credit & Copyright:   Tunç Tezel and Stéphane Guisard (TWAN)
 A quest to find planet Earth’s darkest night skies led to this intriguing panorama.  In projection, the mosaic view sandwiches the horizons visible in all-sky images taken from the northern hemisphere’s Canary Island of La Palma (top) and the south’s high Atacama Desert between the two hemispheres of the Milky Way Galaxy.  The photographers’ choice of locations offered locally dark skies enjoyed by La Palma’s Roque de los Muchachos Observatory and Paranal Observatory in Chile.  But it also allowed the directions to the Milky Way’s north and south galactic poles to be placed near the local zenith.  That constrained the faint, diffuse glow of the plane of the Milky Way to the mountainous horizons.  As a result, an even fainter S-shaped band of light, sunlight scattered by dust along the solar system’s ecliptic plane, can be completely traced through both northern and southern hemisphere night skies.

Starry Night over Dubai 

Image Credit & Copyright:  Babak Tafreshi (TWAN) 
A starry night over the city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates is really not so starry.  In fact, the Moon is the only celestial beacon to come close to competing with city lights in this night skyscape, a situation all too familiar to urban skygazers.  The futuristic looking scene is dominated by the 800 meter tall Khalifa Tower, presently the tallest free standing structure on planet Earth.  But for now you should also be able to make out a few of the very brightest stars in Earth’s night sky.  Capella is left of the tower and Aldebaran, Betelgeuse, Rigel, and stars in Orion’s Belt can just be identified in the heavily light-polluted skies.
