Branched Oak Obvservatory Launches Page to Feature Nebraska Night Sky Photographers
Branched Oak Observatory (branchedoakobservatory.com)—the popular sky park north of Lincoln and just outside the Branched Oak Lake and State Recreation Area—is a known destination for lovers of the night sky, and now the Observatory has created a new group on Facebook that promotes the art of astrophotography, featuring exclusively photographers from Nebraska.
“There is an incredible amount of interest in the night sky and some very talented astrophotographers in Nebraska,” said Michael Sibbernsen, the CEO of Branched Oak Observatory. “Here you will not only find close-up images of the moon, planets, galaxies, and nebulae, but widefield pictures of the night sky sharing the view with beautiful Nebraskan scenery. It is important to note that the Nebraska Astrophotography Facebook page is not just for experienced photographers with fancy equipment, but for anyone to share their favorite pictures of the night sky.”
Established in 2015, Branched Oak Observatory offers unique viewing experiences and learning opportunities for young and old alike. Learn more at branchedoakobservatory.com.
