Heavens above by LordLJCornellPhotos Heavens above by LordLJCornellPhotos
This is a bit of astrophotography. The building is Meldon Park which is where I was staying. It is a wonderful place to stay. It is in Northumberland in the North East of England. There may be a couple of short meteor trails just to the left of the house. I am no expert. This is my first try at astro other than earlier in the same week at Dunstanburgh castle. I wasn't interested in star trails for these shots, I just wanted to see a sky crowded with stars. Down near London we have so much light polution you never see a sky like this.

Beautiful.  I've been so disappointed because the last couple weekend trips I took out to more rural areas the skies were cloudy.
