As the global coronavirus COVID-19 situation progresses, we all are trying to get in safe type of quarantine. My all hopes are now with all the people who suffer the most and wish them to get over this as soon as possible. But as astrophotographer I also spend lot of time alone, significantly far away from civilization and can see how much we all hurt to nature. Light pollution, gas emissions, plastics, felling of forests… Nature is bleeding because of us. At some point, I understand the virus situation as relatively peaceful slap from the nature to wake us up and realize that we are too irresponsible and selfish. When we heal ourselves, we have to start to heal the nature as well. Or the next slap can be much stronger.
