Coll and Halley
Here are two scenes in which clear skies feature. One shows Hogh Bay, Coll, and the other cosmic dust from Halley's Comet photographed above Northumberland. The Comet is not due to return until 2061, but some of its dust was evident in shooting-star displays on Tuesday and Wednesday nights of this week. An informed account appears in the Edinburgh Evening News and a recommended place to watch this type of heavenly event is the island of Coll, well-known for its low light-pollution.
