These photos are out of this world: How one space enthusiast captures the night sky
It can be quite spectacular to find yourself away from city lights with a moment to look up at the sky. Although it doesn’t happen enough for most of us city dwellers, there is a large group of amateur astronomers who carve out specific time to gaze into the sky. One of those is Dave Rudisuela, an electrical engineering technologist living in Rocky View County who would be out every night if he could.
“There is just so much out there,” he says, trying to pinpoint what fascinates him with space.
Rudisuela will spend hours at a time in his observatory. Summer nights he can be out till 3 a.m., and if it’s a big meteor shower he won’t retire till sunrise. But Rudisuela doesn’t just observe space, he has spends time photographing it.
