Reclaiming the night sky: award-winning astrophotography

Found these amazing photos on the New Scientist site:

Iranian photographer Babak Tafreshi has won the 2009 Lennart Nilsson scientific photography prize. According to the award panel, his images "reclaim a night sky that most modern people have lost."



It makes you realise why the stars were so important to ancient peoples - imagine looking up and seeing that, instead of a few distant dots. Amazing.
