Space

I’ve always been fascinated with space.

I love science fiction movies and tv series that take place in space.
I’m a big fan of NASA and Neil DeGrasse Tyson.
I enjoy watching the night skies for stars, lunar eclipses, planetary alignments and meteor showers.

I’ve been working on a mix for stargazing for 11 years now.
It’s not quite done yet, but here’s a preview on Spotify.
