Description

With my astro friends, we spent one astro week getaway in the Cevennes (France). This spot is magical. It's a dark sky preserve part of Cevennes national park . (more precisely the south part of the park named "Causses Noires").
Pickering's Triangle (or Pickering's Triangular Wisp), brightest at the north central edge of the loop, but visible in photographs continuing toward the central area of the loop.
