Paul and Lorraine's Astrospace Picture of the Month

June

As it is June and we’re close to the Summer Solstice here is part of the famous Stone circle of Avebury. It was taken on Oct 5th 2016 whilst I was on a speaking tour taking in the Wiltshire AS amongst others. I (Paul) walked all round the full circle and it is hard to grasp the sheer size from the ground! To get an idea of scale, note near the centre of the image, a couple of sightseers passing each other who are ~ 1/3 the height of the stone behind them!
