Ever since the dawn of time, humans have been fascinated by the stars. Ancient civilizations believed that the stars represented various mythological entities, and often referred to celestial events as omens. In more modern time, humans have begun exploring outer space with telescopes and space probes, and we’ve started learning more about the stars.

Even though stars may seem far away, it’s still possible to see them with the naked eye when it’s dark outside. It’s also possible to photograph the stars, but the lack of light makes things a bit more challenging. However, using long exposure, or by doing astrophotography using a telescope, it’s possible to get some amazing views of the night skies.

In this post, I’ve gathered up 30 beautiful starry night photographs to show you what’s possible.
