People in York (well, those prepared to be up through the night) were rewarded with a spectacular view of the lunar eclipse on Monday morning. I feel sorry for some I know who got up through the night and see clouds, only to go back to bed to miss the spectacle when they cleared. York Astro members were busy posting their photographs to social media and Martin Dawson had a photo selected for the York Press lunar eclipse gallery and then with a front page picture and accreditation for him and the Society.
Elsewhere, at the Lime Tree Observatory, Martin Whipp also had a successful evening and was similarly rewarded with a spot on Channel 5.
All in all it was a great night and locally put the Society in the spotlight with some well deserved publicity. Well done everyone!
