NYC Without Light Pollution

What would New York City look like at night if there were no light pollution to shroud the stars? This 3-minute short film titled SKYGLOW NYC aims to answer.

The video was created by photographers Gavin Heffernan and Harun Mehmedinovic of SKYGLOW, an ongoing project that raises awareness for endangered night skies and shows the dangers of light pollution.

“We used compositing techniques to replace the blown out skies of NYC with long exposure footage captured at pristine dark sky locations like Death Valley National Park and Grand Canyon National Park”

The video was released in honor of the upcoming Dark Sky Week, which is from April 15th through the 21st.
