Well done, Makis. You are clearly an amateur astronomer - like me - so I have added you as a favourite photographer.

It's too amazing! Billions of stars in unbelievable distances deep in space... Full of light... Our Milky Way may look like similar from there, only the spiral arms slightly open. I'm particularly interested in astronomy. I know that Andromeda can be seen with bare eyes as the farest object in the sky, as it is read on many sources. Many years ago when I dealed intensively with the amateur astronomy I've tried to see the Andromeda Galaxy without telescope or binoculars by using constellation cards in astronomy books. But despite all efforts, clear sky and precisely targeted viewing direction, I unfortunately could not recognize the Andromeda nebula. How many times had I tried it! In determining the exact position I had oriented me to the constellations Cassiopeia and Pegasus.

Great photo, a look at the night-time sky reminds us, that we are just dust in the wind
