You may have heard of Dr Joseph Caruana, from the Department of Physics and Institute of Space Sciences & Astronomy, through his fight to save Dwejra's dark sky heritage. Well, apart from lecturing and doing other astrophysicist-y things, Joseph can take one hell of a photograph.

These stunning images captured from Dwejra are beyond breath-taking, and certainly do a lot to back his case for protecting the dark sky in the area!

From incredible shots of the Milky Way featuring nebulae and star clusters to appearances by different planets like Jupiter, we bet you’ve never seen the sky look so pretty.

Remember the lunar eclipse last week? Yep, we peered up at it too, but it didn’t look quite like this…
