Tonight is February’s full moon. Also known as Snow Moon, it’s pretty safe to say it’s lived up to its name (and we have the snow memes to prove it). Besides that, tonight there’ll also be a lunar eclipse. And if that’s not enough, there’s going to be the rare comet 45P, too. Pretty stellar, huh? Tonight’s sky is definitely one you won’t want to miss, but if you do, here are some photo editing tricks to help you recreate the amazingness with PicsArt photo editor.

One of the best things about the PicsArt community is that we get to share our photography experiences with others, regardless of the distance between us.

When I was younger, I wanted nothing more than to be an astronaut and travel into space (then I grew up and realized how much math is involved, and quickly changed my mind). Something about the unknown, the colors, the mystery and the sheer magnitude always drew me in — it still does. Space never ceases to blow my mind and take my breath away, whether I’m watching the sun set, the moon rise, or wishing on a shooting star. But there is so much more to space that most of us can comprehend. Astrophotography has not only created beautiful works of art, but it has had an astronomical impact on space research. By using long exposures (and we mean loooooooong exposures), cameras are able to photograph dim stars, nebulae and galaxies that are usually invisible to the human eye. To celebrate National Space Day, here are some of the…

Gaze up at a sea of stars from some of Earth’s most majestic landscapes in these 10 shots captured by PicsArtists around the world. These users ventured to some of the world’s most beautiful places in the dark of night, from snow-capped mountain peaks to red-rock deserts, to look up at the same night sky.
