“I’m imagining we’re standing there (in Zambia), gazing at the sky, overwhelmed by the magnitude of what we can see.  I’m imagining that as we stare upwards, our minds can almost take us there, travelling through the night sky and exploring individual stars with their unique personalities and characteristics.” – Anna Lapwood
