There's nothing else quite like gazing at the stars, holding your arms out, closing your eyes, and spinning around; it's like you take in the energy of the universe, which it looks like the girl in Alois Heinrich Priechenfried's "A Woman Looking at the Stars" is enjoying. ๐Ÿ™‚

Aurora, Edinburgh

Sometimes you just gotta sit on a bench beside the Observatory, eating fish & chips from a favoured chippy (Stefano's on Morningside Road) in a chilly -1ยบC under light of a full moon whilst watching the remains of an aurora display as Orion rises.

#PPOD: Taken in 2016, this stunning composite photo shows the Milky Way stretching above the Isar River in Germany as well as the stunning landscape beneath the river's surface. Photographer Johannes Holzer used a star tracker to capture the night sky and a Sony A7r in a water-case to get the underwater scenery. Both exposures took 300 seconds. We think you'll agree that the result is beautiful. Credit: Johannes Holzer

11/11/2023 - We had to go shopping in town today, never my favourite place but I survived and got what was needed. We try to only go a couple of times a year, that's enough for me. Got home and needed a walk and a bit of dark so we packed our tea, made a flask and headed out up the hill. Four hour stroll, looking at stars, chatting rubbish to each other and getting the heads in a happier place. Chilly but little wind tonight, a nice walk.

#EveningWalk #Trigpoint #NightSky

Heading up the hill, the lights of the village below. Still a bit of twilight colour to the darkening sky.
Spaceways' thumbs up to a trigpoint in the dark
Walking on the dark, quiet country road. Nice stars and Jupiter above a pylon. Pleiades right in the middle.
Dark sky, lots of stars. A light trail of my head torch in the foreground as I walk through the shot.

"The spectacle offered by a very dark night sky no longer just contains stars and planets that are standing still. We now also see numerous satellitesโ€ฆ and only their movement allows us to distinguish them from the natural stars."

This is one *massive* aurora display on the go. Too much cloud in the wrong places to be seeing any red but it was right overhead and down into the southern side of the sky... Just wow.

It's dark outside, but the rain showers stopped and clouds are breaking up.

In the pre-dawn southeast Michigan sky, I can see Venus in the east and Jupiter in the west. No binoculars or scope needed.

Great views of Venus, Jupiter, Sirius, and Betelgeuse in southeast Michigan sky right now.

I am certainly skeptical. Especially if Space.com is in favor of it.

A simple streetlight hack could protect astronomy from urban light pollution

We had wonderfully clear skies at #FreshwaterBay on the #IsleofWight last night, so my husband headed out to photograph the #MilkyWay

The Island is a great place for #nightsky photography as we have little light pollution over the majority of the land and seacape.

A clear sky, full of stars over a coastline and a couple of large rock stacks. The sea is perfectly still, lights froma distant town in the far distance. Some colour left in the sky from the day time. A peaceful picture.

๐ŸŽตBlue moon, you saw me standing alone...๐ŸŽถ
Last night's residual clouds, combined with the low angle, gave the moon a haze. It almost looks like a water covered planet.

#3GoodThings #ReasonsToBeCheerful

1. I see stars in the sky.

2. I absolutely love sitting on the front porch with my dog. She's super chill and just sits there with me with no inclination to leave the porch unless I tell her it's okay, even if I leave the porch.

3. Knowing the 10 hour version of Marconi Union's 'Weightless' will get me to sleep again tonight despite my overactive mind.
