The wonder of the night sky has been a constant since the dawn of civilization. It has inspired countless generations, poets, scientists and dreamers. Today this natural resource is threatened by the careless use of artificial light.
It's International Dark Sky Week, April 20 - 26, 2014. Let's spread an awareness among people and show them what they are losing when improper lighting is used in the city and around places that are away from the city which are potential places for star gazers.

The International Dark-Sky Association has been working to protect and preserve the night sky for future generations.
"Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky."
Let our future generation recite this poem and know what it actually means.
I've put together this timelapse compilation from the images that i've taken since i got into astrophotography, to show people what the dark sky beholds for us and what we would lose if we did not protect it. If we continue to pollute the night sky with light there would no longer be "Twinkle Twinkle little star".

Light right, Celebrate the stars and share the message.
