Astronomical Society of Malta to present astrophotography exhibition at Esplora

Mark your calendars for an amazing cosmic adventure at Malta’s Interactive Science Center, from November 21 to December 1. Esplora is once again collaborating with the Astronomical Society of Malta (ASM) to present an exciting exhibition, featuring an impressive collection of astronomical images taken by committed ASM members throughout the year.

The Astronomical Society of Malta was established in 1984, with the goal of promoting knowledge and appreciation of astronomy as a science. Since then, they have strived to deepen the public’s understanding of the cosmos, as well as boost the conservation of Dark Sky Heritage Areas (DSHAs). These are coastal areas in Gozo and Comino with significantly dark skies that were declared DSHAs by the Malta Environment and Planning Authority (MEPA) in order to preserve them. 

This exhibition gives ‘shooting stars’ a new meaning, as local astrophotographers, from enthusiastic amateurs to seasoned pros, expertly aimed their cameras and telescopes to capture the night sky. Their teamwork has produced an amazing array of photos that cover the Solar System, and you too can lose yourself in the glories of space in just a week! Discover far-off galaxies, and uncover the vivid colours of nebulae—each shot perfectly capturing the captivating beauty present in the Universe.
