We’re in Cape Town’s city center, South Africa, immersed in a night where Asteroid 2023BU brushes past Earth. The city’s clear night sky provides a perfect backdrop to photograph the cosmos. Our gaze captures Aldebaran, alongside the planets Mars and Uranus, as well as the captivating Pleiades star cluster. Additionally, the constellation Auriga, adorned by Capella, Hassaleh, and Elnath, graces our view.
As in our other documentary productions we count on the technology of the iPhone and this is how the iPhone 14Pro / iPhone Xs with the NightMode, NightSky and NightCap app makes astrophotography. We use the following apps to support our astrophotography: iPhone NightMode, NightSky, Stellarium, Sky Guide and NightCap.
