Hong Kong is known for having extremely high light pollution as a result of the city’s bright lights. When this city fall asleep at night, only a few stars can be seen regularly in the urban areas on some of the clearest evening. In this image we can see stars passing above tightly packed streets. ‘Another of my favourites from the entire competition. It shows that wherever you are in the world, no matter how congested or light-polluted your surroundings, astronomy is still possible. What a brilliantly imagined concept for a shot.’ Jon Culshaw Born digital photograph entitled 'City Lights' by Wing Ka Ho taken at Quarry Bay, Hong Kong on 18th October 2015. Taken with a Canon EOS 6D camera, 24mm f/8 lens, ISO 400, 10-second exposure. Winner of the People & Space category of Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2016.
