Trailing the sky

By Phil Plait | November 12, 2009 1:30 pm

Via Digg I found a lovely website called Light Stalking, with tips and fantastic photos for amateur photographers. The site is featuring wide-angle (that is, not through a telescope) pictures of the sky taken by amateurs, and they’re lovely. The pix were culled from Flickr (though not freely licensed, so I cannot post any here), but it’s easier to get them all from one place. Take a look! Maybe they’ll inspire you to try to get some of your own.

    I’d be a lot more impressed with the web site if there were a *lot* fewer pop-up ads blasting all over the place (most of them animated, even).

    Thanks for that BA! :-D

    Just this evening I used a wide-angle lens to photograph the ISS going over my house.
