This summer there was only one date and one place on earth where one could see both a partial eclipse of the moon, a conjunction Moon - Saturn, rain of stars, aurora borealis to name but a few phenomenon known to the neophyte that I am in astronomy. It was on August 19th in the premises of Chasseurs de Nuit, near Paris, for the jury of the PNA. I was lucky enough to be invited to this feast of images - nearly 300 pictures - coming from some forty countries. This is to say the richness of the proposals that our jury was able to admire, from the point of view of the variety of celestial phenomena as well as technical feats in terms of shooting or the creative talent of the authors because yes, astronomy is also an art that reinvents itself to infinity.
The task was therefore difficult, and this jury job is hard! Difficult not to think, for each shot cast away from our selection, of the amount of preparation, time spent behind the camera and in front of the computer screen, of all this energy invested to produce an original shot. I would like to congratulate and thank each of the participants for this magnificent image production! The disappointed ones of today will, in persevering, be the winners of tomorrow! And congratulations to the winners whose images and time-lapses managed to seduce a jury where reigned a relaxed and constructive atmosphere until the selection of finalists, and who awarded the prizes by a democratic vote. We now have an appointment on September 22nd at 7pm at the Submarine Base in Bordeaux to share with you the most beautiful images of this fourth edition of the Photo NightScape Awards and spoil its winners. A nice evening in perspective of which, you can be sure, you will leave with eyes full of stars!
