Castlerigg Sunrise

Totally gratuitous, perhaps, but Rob’s description of a night observing at Castlerigg reminded me of a sunrise I saw there in the 1980s on a backpacking holiday with my brother; I got a couple of nice pics, some of my favourites ever. It was hard not to imagine our ancestors standing in the same place watching the sun over the stones.

If anyone recalls seeing ‘Children of the Stones’ as a youngster the whole series is on You Tube, it gets quite astronomical near the end although the physics is a bit dodgy! Starring the much missed Gareth Thomas, who played Roj Blake in Blake’s Seven (another astro-related point to justify this post!)
