Just in case you’ve been living under a rock or perhaps in a bunker, there are two things you should know:

1. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set for theatrical release on December 17.


2. Manitoba has some of the best skies you will ever gaze upon.

So what do these two things have in common? Not much. But to have a little fun, we thought we would encourage our amazing community to once again set their sights to the sky in an epic Sky Wars, where yes, Manitoba will awaken.

How it works

Gather your camera, your binoculars and The Force and set out on a sky-seeking adventure through our beautiful province. We’re looking for star shots, cloudy captures and amazing auroras. Submit your photos on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #skywarsmb to be eligible to win.
