Photography plays a powerful role in the dark sky movement. A photograph of the naturally dark sky connects those who’ve never laid eyes on the naturally dark sky to a universe hidden behind the veil of skyglow. Similarly, images that portray the impact of light pollution can spark conservation awareness and action. Photography has the power to transport us and inspire us to connect with and ultimately protect the night.
In celebration, the DarkSky International is hosting the fourth annual Capture the Dark Photography Contest! It is free to enter and open to entrants worldwide. Learn more.
