Seeing In The Dark

Seeing In The Dark is a state-of-the-art documentary introducing viewers to the rewards of first-person, hands-on astronomy. Written, produced and narrated by award-winning filmmaker, journalist and best-selling author Timothy Ferris, the program is based on Ferris' book, Seeing in the Dark (Simon & Schuster, 2002), named one of the 10 best books of the year by The New York Times. The program features high-definition astrophotography (a specialized type of photography that entails making photographs of astronomical objects in the sky such as planets, the sun, star clusters and galaxies) and introduces men and women, both professionals and amateurs, who have seen and captured phenomenal images.
