Astrophotography is at once the oldest and the newest of the arts. From the earliest cave paintings depicting the locations of supernovas and constellations, to the newest digital wonders, astrophotography appeals to our innate desires as artists to annotate, depict, and express the natural world around us. Join us for a photographic journey into outer space as we explore the moon, the solar system, and what lies beyond - galaxies, clusters, and nebulae.
