Skywatch - Jupiter Artland, Scotland

A couple of view of the skies over West Lothian and Fife yesterday taken at the fantastic Jupiter Artland sculpture park in East Calder. This work is appropriately for Skywatch Friday, called Firmament, by Antony Gormley. It is a huge structure - a crouching figure composed of steel balls welded together with lengths of rod and is inspired by an old star chart.

See the worldwide skies at Skywatch Friday.

What a great place to visit! You are right-the weeping girls do look quite disturbing but I like them. I love the sign pointing to Jupiter too!
