Nor only saw he all that could be,
But much that never was, nor would be;
Whereby all prophets far outwent he,
though former days produced a plenty:
For any man with half an eye
What stands before him can espy;
But optics sharp it needs, I ween,
To see what is not to be seen.
-John Trumbull, from M'Fingal
Welcome to Gil-Galad Observatory.
Home of astrophotography by Derek Java.
Gil-Galad means "star light" in JRR Tolkien's mythic world of Middle Earth. I am proud that this website is a part of the Tolkien world, and I hope you enjoy it.
