Heavens above!

The heavens in Carriacou are so different.

The sun sets descending almost vertically behind the horizon and darkness follows each sunset very quickly with very little twilight.

You’ll find a half moon instead of looking like a letter D will rise on its front or its back like a soup bowl or a bowler hat and will invert as it passes immediately overhead, setting completely the other way up.

Orion and the other constellations you know well are almost indistinguishable from the background noise of so many million other stars you never knew were there.

And the blackness of the night, with so little light pollution, means the tiniest shooting stars are revealed streaking across the sky and the full splendour of the Milky Way stands out boldly like a moonlit ribbon of cloud.
