We are pleased to present the best photos of the NightScape Awards 2017, organized by the French non-profit Chasseurs de Nuits. This new photo contest edition has once again seen the most beautiful photos of nocturnal landscapes and time-lapses of the whole world confront each other. "There was this summer a single date and a single place on earth where we could see both partial eclipse of the moon, a conjunction Moon - Saturn, showers of stars, aurora borealis to name but a few phenomena ... it was the 19th of August," said the president of the Jury, Guillaume Cuvillier of Nikon (Miguel Claro Astrophotography of the Reserva DARK SKY Alqueva having had a problem of internet connection from the USA).
We would like to thank all the amateur and professional photographers who have participated and offered their stunning pictures of a constant renewed quality.
This international prize for the photography contest of nightscapes could not exist without its partners to whom we extend a heartfelt thank you.
