The Moon and Stars – Sappho

The stars that round the Queen of Night

Like maids attend her
Hide as in veils of mist their light
When she, in full-orbed glory bright.
O’er all the earth shines from her height,

A silver splendour.

Sappho, trans. Arthur S. Way

    What a joy to be able to personally see these images. I love your pictures. Are you in some way connected with Nasa or a scientific laboratory? Do you have a personal telescope?
