The World At Night (TWAN)

(Linz, October 6, 2011) The World at Night (TWAN) is an international initiative to protect and preserve the night sky. Launched by Iranian science journalist Babak A. Tafreshi in 2007, TWAN’s team of committed activists now includes astrophotographers from all over the world. They create gorgeous photographs and time-lapse images of heavenly bodies by night in which historically significant places on Earth and some of our planet’s most impressive landscapes are depicted in the foreground. “The World at Night” at the Ars Electronica Center is an exhibition in strictly digital form. It showcases a selection of the most outstanding photos and time-lapse images shot by TWAN’s photographers. Read more
