Make a new file or Layer (whatever floats your boat)
Pick a dark Blue colour and fill your layer. This is your background. I used #160f46
Pick the Burn tool and pick the maple leaf brush. (Comes default with Photoshop) Set the exposure to 10-20% and go over your background darkening it. Leave some light areas untouched.
Pick the Dodge tool and the leaf brush again. Set the exposure at 20-25% and go over the lighter areas that you left.
Make a new layer and pick a soft brush. Set the flow at 20-30% and star painting stars. It's easier if you se the mouse for this. If you're lazy like me you can create a few stars and then copy/paste accordingly. If you want look at real starry sky pictures to make your effect more realistic.
Make another layer and use the same brush but a bigger size. Go over your bigger stars and make them glow. When you're done set the layer opacity to 70%
Enjoy your night sky! You can also make red and orange etc skies this way :D
