20 Of The Most Breathtaking Images Of The Night Sky Ever Captured

NOVEMBER 16, 2016  —  By Corinne Sanders

There's always been something special to me about looking up into the night sky and seeing the wonders of our universe.

The moon and stars are stunning, but not being a photographer, I've never been able to capture the same beauty in an image that I've witnessed in person. Even during the recent supermoon, I only managed to take a photo of what looks like a round, glowing blur in the distance. It's clear that I don't have a fraction of the talent that these people do.

Get ready to have your breath taken away...

1. These gorgeous purple shades were captured in Taiping, China.

2. This phenomenon that occurred over Bora Bora may have been a satellite flare.

3. In Dundee, Scotland, the nightlife paired with the sky is a seriously beautiful sight.

4. This photo of the sky in Hubbard, Texas, looks like it belongs in a gallery.
