Gardening Australia - - GARDEN NEWS -

The awe-in­spir­ing night sky above Calverts Beach, south of Ho­bart (above), is one draw­card in Win­ning Sky Pho­tos 2017: The David Malin Awards ex­hi­bi­tion now show­ing in Syd­ney. This im­age, by James Gar­lick, is among the win­ners in the an­nual con­test or­gan­ised by the Cen­tral West Astro­nom­i­cal So­ci­ety and judged by the renowned as­tropho­tog­ra­pher of the show’s ti­tle. Dr Malin looks for pho­tos that not only ex­hibit tech­ni­cal skills, but cap­ture the beauty of the sky and demon­strate an aes­thet­i­cally pleas­ing in­ter­est in astronomy. The tour­ing ex­hi­bi­tion is in Syd­ney un­til Oc­to­ber 29, while a par­al­lel show is at the so­ci­ety’s Parkes Ob­ser­va­tory base un­til July 2018.
