Challenge has finished
This challenge is all about the things above this world of ours - the skies, the clouds, the heavens, the moon, and the stars. All of you out there who are drawn to look up are invited to submit your best photo of the sky and anything in it - can be a wide angle landscape, or it can be an extreme telephoto shot of the moon. It can be a bird... it can be a plane... it can be Superman if you spot him.

This is Iceland. When travelling from the Myvatn area in the island's north, we parked the car in the middle of nowhere and turned out the headlights to look at this early September display of the Aurora in the pure sky (no city or other cars nearby!). I spent over an hour taking pictures, heedless of the chill, while my sister cooked pasta on a campstove. Couldn't ask for a better light show at this time of year. It was hard to pick just one photo.
