St. Patrick's night on the Giant's Causeway at the Co. Antrim coast in 2012. The Milky Way arched across the sky and dived gracefully into the sea to the NW, Mars was ruddy red in Leo and Orion was a sight to behold above the dark cliff tops towering high into the sky behind us. The view however to the W and NW was outstanding with the planet conjunction completely dominating the entire sky, these pair were totally eye catching, our gaze couldn't avoid looking in that direction due to their brilliance, it seemed the Earth's atmosphere had been removed and we were viewing the planets and stars among the inky blackness of space itself. I could also see the Zodiacal Light (ZL) in the same region of sky as an obvious glow extending upwards from the horizon at an angle and following the ecliptic until it blended in with the soft outer regions of the Milky Way. Venus and Jupiter where embedded with its glow which you can clearly see at image centre extending from the planets down to the horizon. I had seen it before however this time it was an unforgettable sight thanks to those two diamonds within, read the report for more information. * All images are available for sale in the form of photo prints, canvas or digital files for licensing, if you are interested in a purchase simply drop me an email.
