The Daily Telegraph has put together a list of the best places to see the stars in Britain (and a few places to stay when visiting these areas). They based their positions on Dark Skies maps such as this one, this one and this one.
But what might you see? A show of the young and the old in terms of targets available to stargazers has been put on in this photograph showing the International Space Station in some detail as well as the planet Jupiter. Sadly, the clicks didn’t get the two side by side or even overlapping as was possible, but both targets were in the same vicinity at least. A challenge for the rest of us there… It should be noted that the image was taken with a 16cm telescope in daylight – so no excuses!
