From astrophotographer Jack Fusco comes a breathtaking reminder to stop and savor the starscapes that soar above us every night – whether we find ourselves in rural Utah, far from city lights, or the Eastern seaboard, just a few miles removed from bright, bustling urban life.

"I’ve been working on a timelapse of thenight sky over the New Jersey coastline,” Fusco told Universe Today. “New Jersey definitely isn’t the best location for stargazing, but I think given the circumstances, many people will be surprised. I hope it inspires people to set some time aside to stargaze where they live even if they previously thought it wasn’t worth trying.”
