A Night in Croatia

By: Bernd Proschold


Region: Europe

Site: Northern Velebit National Park - Croatia

Date: 2009

Time-lapse video: As the sun sets above this remarkable landscape in Croatia, the Milky Way rise above the sea. The Northern Velebit National Park is a protected mountain area at the northeastern coast of the Adriatic Sea. As noted by the photographer "The shot was taken in an altitude of more than 1600m and shows several Croatian islands like Krk, Rab and Cres. The park is home of several large carnivores like brown bear, lynx, wolf and wild cat. For an astronomer it is good to know that these animals, especially the bears, avoid contact to men. But alone in a moonless night with few meters visibility and the cry of unknown animals in the air I was happy when the dawn finally was rising. Bernd Proschold/
