Stargazing in Sumava, Czech Republic
One of the most beautiful sights in our world – a night sky full of stars, galaxies, nebulas, meteor showers or other astronomical objects is becoming harder and harder to see due to increasing light pollution.
Europe, as a continent, is no different. There are not many places which offer good conditions for stargazing or Milky Way sightings. Luckily, during my holidays in the Czech Republic, we managed to find a place in Sumava National Park; a village called Modrava where the conditions can be almost perfect.
These photographs show the Milky Way movement across the night sky and fragments of the Perseid meteor shower during one evening in July 2017.
