Clear skies brought great views

The meteor shower last Thursday evening was fantastic. At Glentrool between 3 and 4 hours of spectacular stargazing saw between 80 and 90 very, very clear meteors. There were lots going off all night but those were particularly good.

We weren't the only ones out enjoying this treat but lots of you headed to the many good viewing spots within the Galloway Forest Park to witness the show themselves.

We would love to hear your meteor shower stories and where in the Galloway Forest Park you watched it from. If you have any pictures you took of the night sky on Thursday that you would like to share that would be great too.

We hope you all had a very enjoyable evening.

Here's to the next!
