The Hebridean Dark Skies Festival is showcasing the winning entries to its 2021 Photography Competition, all taken in the Hebrides (6 Feb – 27 Mar). Hosted by An Lanntair, the arts hub in Stornoway, the festival takes place against some of most extraordinary dark skies in the UK. In winter, in particular, many astronomical sights can be seen through the naked eye, including the Orion Nebula (over 1,500 light years away), the Milky Way galaxy and the Great Andromeda galaxy. The Aurora Borealis, better known as the Northern Lights, can also be seen from the Western Isles.
