Nighttime is wonderfully mysterious, beautiful, and full of a certain kind of energy — and most of the time, we diurnal humans sleep right through it. Have you ever wondered what would happen if you could not only stay awake for it all but also peek in on what’s happening at night across the entire planet?
In his newest book, Night on Earth, acclaimed photographer Art Wolfe gives us a glimpse of nature, animals, and human activity on every continent, after the sun goes down. Blazing sunsets over Antarctic ice. Night markets pulsing with activity in Morocco. Glittering star trails over the Australian outback. Colonies of penguins awaking to the dawn. Wolfe reveals it all through a dazzling compilation of photos that Sir David Attenborough calls “…a suburb evocation of some of the most breathtaking spectacles in the world.”
Art is joined by Ruskin Hartley, Director of the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA). He champions equitable access to dark skies and quality lighting for all through IDA’s award-winning programs. Ruskin works to secure increased support for IDA’s priorities around the world and believes that experiencing a dark sky, and appreciating quality lighting, are essential to all life on Earth.
