Adam delights with Leenan sky at night 26.02.15

BUNCRANA photographer Adam Rory Porter captured a rare delight with this photo of a meteorite and the Milky Way as seen from Leenan Fort in Clonmany.
Adam's photo was this month's winner in the Buncrana Camera Club monthly competition which had 'The Sky at Night' as its February theme.
"One of the best things, I think, about Inishowen in County Donegal is our night skies. When there's a wee break in the weather our dark skies light up with a billion stars which are just so easy to see up here," Adam explained.
"Initially we had cloud and haze but when we arrived at Leenan Fort in Urris, the air cleared and the stars beamed down."
Adam, who is PRO of Buncrana Camera Club, said new members are always welcome - regardless of whether you are a complete novice or a seasoned professional.
The group meets in the function room of O'Flaherty's bar in Buncrana at 7.30pm on Tuesday evenings - except when they're out on field trips hunting for stunning snaps.
