Jupiter, originally uploaded by MichaelGT.

The planet Jupiter taken from our street. Took me ages to get a photo I was happy with, glad I persisted.

Always used to be into the planets and that when I was a kid, but I lost touch with it all. BBC Stargazing over the past few nights has awakened something in me - so when the skies finally cleared over Preston (this blog didn't get it's name for nothing, y'know) I took the time to get this little snap.

To think that little bright dot is the biggest planet in our solar system... Makes you realise how insignificant we really are in the grand scheme of things.

I spent some time with this guy ( when I was in Chile, one of the best place on Earth to star gaze. So dark and clear at night that you can clearly see the Milky Way with the naked eye at night.
