From twilight to the dark night until dawn: Bernd Willinger and Norbert Span have spent more than 250 nights on the tops of the Alps to take pictures of the fantastic starry sky over the mountains. They are taking us to an unknown and mysterious world full of brilliance. Let’s admire stars glooming like diamonds, the bright tie of the Milky Way, the Andromeda-Galaxy as well as wonderful and mysterious Airglows.
