Accidental Journey (2010) is a book featuring images and texts elliptically relating to astronomy in general and to the moon and lunar exploration in particular. Its centrepiece is a serendipitous encounter with a memento from the Apollo 11 mission at an observatory near Dublin, a small Irish flag that travelled onboard the spacecraft and for unknown reasons ended up back in Ireland.
