Welcome to The Lonely Photon!
My name is Adriano, I’m an amateur astronomer and astrophotographer based in Luxembourg, Europe. In case you’re wondering: no, I’m not the one in the pictures 🙂 That is Gatto, my assistant and inseparable friend.
Since I can remember I’ve been fascinated by the mysteries of the cosmos, with its beautiful sights and twinkling stars. But it’s only in 2020 that I got my first telescope, and that has literally changed my life!
Today I’m a well-equipped astrophotographer, and each time the weather allows it (which is not too often here in Luxembourg) I pack my astrophotography gear and go out in the dark to capture those beautiful lonely photons that travel unimaginable distances to please our eyes.
The Lonely Photon is a project I started in July 2021 with the main goal of sharing knowledge, and hopefully bring people closer to this amazing world. Because as Stephen Hawking once said: “To confine our attention to terrestrial matters would be to limit the human spirit.“
I hope you enjoy my blog!
