Reclaiming the night sky

Using an idea similar to the International Year of Astronomy, 2009‘s project The World at Night, Iranian photographer Babak Tafreshi has won the 2009 Lennart Nilsson scientific photography prize. His set of photographs aims to show the night sky as it looks in areas outside of the pollution (aerosol and light varieties) of modern urban environments (he shows a couple of those for comparison, too). See a slideshow of his award winning work here.
