Rare and Stunning Views of the Glowing Universe Overhead

This stunning collection of Astrophotography by filmmaker and photographer Michael Shainblum features a rare view of nature at its best and brightest. In each scene, the California-based artist uses long exposures as well as multiple images stitched together to produce one final panorama.

With a passion for the universe, Shainblum ventures out into the night to document the glowing displays above. His dedication provides those of us less willing to travel in search of the darkest night skies with unique views that are often lost in the pollution of artificial light.

Each image features vibrant colors and luminous night skies. The combination of the galaxies with the dark silhouetted landscapes in the foreground blurs the line between our understanding of Earth and the mystery of outer space. Shainblum says, “Sometimes nature holds the greatest surprises, and gives you a spectacle beyond your wildest imagination.”
