I just though that I’d share hubby’s photo of tonight’s supermoon. We are so lucky to be in an area with dark skies where it can be seen so clearly.


Edit …. really pleased to see that the photo received an Editor’s Pick and made it to the Gallery on the BBC Weatherwatchers website.




Do you want to see our fabulous dark skies for yourself?*

Stargazing, the ISS and Mooning…!

We are so lucky to live on the edge of the Galloway Dark Sky Park which means that we have fabulous dark skies for star gazing.  Howard is the photographer … I just take snapshots so these are his pictures.

Can’t wait until it’s dark? Why not gaze (safely of course) at the brightest star in the sky!!
