  1. I can't get over the amount of light pollution in that first photo from what I assume is the International Space Station.

    1. Yes I think it was from the ISS - Europe and USA are very bad aren't they? no wonder we can't see the stars that well!

  2. Oh I love your cover - thanks for sharing the process. I am trying to design my book covers and having alot of fun.
    Thanks so much for your visit to my blog for A to Z
    So very nice to meet you. Have a lovely time in Wales

    1. Thanks for the compliment - my Indie covers are all designed by Cathy Helms of www.avalongraphics.org - to be honest here think carefully about designing your own unless you really know what you are doing. Quality text needs a quality cover. As Indie Review Manager for the Historical Novel Society I see so many good indie books let down by their obviously 'home designed' cover. I always advise to get a professional if you can.

  3. Gorgeous pictures. I feel so peaceful looking at them.

    1. Thanks - and thanks for dropping by my blog!

  4. Nighttime is so cool. And creepy. :)

    1. Can be creepy - can be exciting as well!

  5. Great pictures and I love the video of the relative size of planets and suns.


Thank you for leaving a comment your interest is very much appreciated! It will be published as soon as possible - depending on whether I am at my computer or walking up the lane, or being chased by the goose or helping mend fences after the pony has broken through YET AGAIN.... :-)
