Carter Observatory, Botanic Gardens, Wellington NZ
Astronomical observatories are fascinating vantage points to far flung stars, planets and space matter.
Where the unknown is made known, the distant made near.
There is an element of magic in that, albeit with a telescope instead of a wand.
Well, that’s my observation anyway…
But I will leave the last word to someone who really understood how to make the magic occur, Galileo Galilei :
” I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night “.
