The Tasmanian Night Sky

The night sky is something I have always been fascinated by as a kid. Growing up in Sri Lanka, I used to sit outside my home¬†every night¬†after dinner and spend hours looking up at the sky. Counting shooting stars and passing satellites was a one-time hobby, as was tracking the movements of Jupiter’s moons.

Even today, when I do have a clear view of the night sky, I just marvel at the stars and galaxies above our heads and wonder what might be out there that is still waiting to be discovered.

During my recent trip to Tasmania, I was treated to some of the most clear night skies I have ever experienced and couldn’t resist attempting some night sky photography. This will hopefully be the first of many such night sky photos…
