The image of Saturn was beamed onto the Eastgate

An image of the planet Saturn has been beamed on to the outside of a shopping centre as part of a Scotland-wide Year of Astronomy project.

Inverness is among cities and towns being used to represent planets and asteroids in a large-scale model of the Solar System.

Highlands Astronomical Society held its event a week early to avoid clashing with other activities.

The project proper will held during Autumn Moonwatch Week, from 24 October.
