A remarkable panoramic picture that was taken in Slovakia was featured as the picture of the day by NASA on its website on April 8, 2020.
The photographer, Tomáš Slovinský, had one picture featured on NASA's picture of the day site just a few months ago, on Christmas Eve. He spent six days taking the panoramic picture to point out "why we are losing stars" - due to light pollution.
"I have not yet encountered a similar picture, so it is possible that it is the first one of its kind," Slovinský, a young Košice native interested in astrophotography and in the popularisation of astronomy, said.
