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.

If you’re lucky, let’s also hope that you get to see a great sunset over Knockdolian Hill whilst you’re waiting!!
