      I've been working in Switzerland for the past 10 years but only recently got into astronomy. For the first time in my life I'm blown away by the stars. Just sitting for 30 minutes on the edge of the lake I can see the outlines of the Milky Way . Least to say I will be investing in some binos 😀
