We were able to watch this very rare astronomical phenomenon from the beautiful place in Poland – among the rocks of the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland, next to the medieval walls of the Castle in Olsztyn. Not only the place was a lucky one, but also the weather made it possible at all! Early morning there was a light frost and the sky was perfectly clear. Above the castle there already towered the winter constellations. We appreciate very much that the officials of Olsztyn decided not to light up the castle, thanks to what the observations were efficient and atmosferic. There were more stargazers along with us. Sometimes they walked over the rocks and walls of the dark fourtress, flashing their flashlights on the background of starry sky with bloodmoon hanged in a void of space… Everything was just beautiful and led us to deep reflections.
