Photographers Capture Beauty In The Stars Over Washington State

Our beautiful world is full of amazing landscapes, from rolling meadows, large mountains, deep valleys and majestic oceans. But if photographed right, the starry sky can also be an amazing thing to photograph. We found some amazing photography of the nighttime sky and stars that are taken over Washington State. These images were captured for the 8th Astrofest Astrophotography Exhibition showcase and the photos are quite stunning.

“Curator Dr John Goldsmith said, “We have some lovely entries featuring the supermoon; we have a lot of images of deep space objects done by people using good telescopes.

Check out these awesome photos of the nighttime sky below that we found on The West Australian

“Astro photographers love to travel to really remote places all over the State and record these amazing images,” Dr Goldsmith said in the article on The West Australian. “We are just so fortunate to be in WA and have the dark night skies that (allow us to) see the Milky Way. That’s one of the reasons why the photography that comes out of WA is so good.”
