BBC Sky at Night ADMIN April 4, 2017
The BBC's official Flickr group for The Sky at Night and Stargazing Live, where we welcome viewers to share their own photographs of the night sky.

Group Description

This is the official BBC Flickr group for The Sky At Night and Stargazing Live.

This group exists to showcase the best astronomy images and help less experienced photographers find inspiration and guidance from the more accomplished. Please welcome members with all levels of ability.

Outstanding images from this group may be featured in BBC programmes, websites or magazines, and will be credited wherever possible (see the Group Rules for details).


Please tag each photo with subject and location.

You may also wish to include your camera settings.

Read the Flickr FAQs on tags for more information on tagging.

Group Rules

We welcome your images of any astronomical objects, and the equipment used to view and photograph them. Scans of astronomical drawings are welcome for The Sky at Night and Stargazing Live.

Uploads are limited to ten images per day. Please keep the images to astronomy and related subjects. We will allow you to include people, but only in an astronomical context, for example with a telescope. We ask that you have permission from everyone in the image and it should not contain private information.

Admins will remove inappropriate material for the benefit of the group.

Please only submit your own original images. Any images submitted to this group may appear in BBC Studios science productions, and by joining the group you give your permission for this.

By submitting your image(s) to this Flickr group you agree that the BBC Studios can use the image(s) free of charge in BBC Studios astronomy and science programmes for transmission anywhere in the world at any time now or in the future.

Your images(s) may also be used to publicise these programmes on television, in the print media and/or on websites.

You still retain all copyright and ownership rights in your photograph or image, and your name will be put on your image on broadcast wherever possible. If you require further clarification, please contact the group administrators.

If we wish to use your image in a programme other than The Sky at Night or Stargazing Live, we’ll use flickrmail to contact you and confirm your permission. If you don’t check it regularly, you might want to link flickrmail to your email account.

Please give your full name, so if we use your image we can credit you properly.
