This new edition has once again seen the most beautiful nocturnal landscapes and timelapses of the whole world confront eachother. "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).
