Black Lives Matter
I stand in solidarity with the Black community fighting for change
Galaxies Nebulae Planetary Nebulae Solar Planetary Lunar

If your response to the Black Lives Matter movement is to say that all lives matter, you need to read this.

This site is dedicated to astrophotography... but I can’t and won’t ignore world events.

As a middle-aged, middle-class white man I am privileged in many ways.  I recognise that I gain enormous privilege due to the colour of my skin.  

That’s not OK.

I recognise that I will never be able to completely understand the injustices that people of colour face on a daily basis.  I understand that there isn’t a quick fix to the oppression of black people across the globe but I stand in solidarity with the black community fighting for change.
