Ohhhhhhhhhhh galaxy

Tonight I saw the Milky Way for the first time – it was stunning.

I’ve always lived in the city and though we can see the stars, they’re dimmed rather because of the light pollution, and I’d never realised to what extent.

Tonight I got out of the car in the middle of Ireland with no other dwelling for some way and no street lights within hundreds of yards and I looked up and the sky was absolutely coated with stars of varying strengths and sizes. There was a milky wispy chunk a little like glittery cirrus cloud and that was the Milky Way. It was awesome.

I stood in the cold as long as I could stand and just looked and saw so, so, so many stars.

Stunning.

How tiny we are – isn’t it fascinating?
