 Eskdalemuir Observatory

We had a really enlightening day at the Eskdalemuir  Observatory. Our thanks to Chris who managed to reduce the most profound aspects of our universe to language that we could  understand. The data produced here and at other similar observatories quite literally keeps our civilisation and our systems  on track.  Our interest in  the invisible forces  that underpin our landscape has taken a massive leap forward.
