ECLIPSE 2015

Down at the dome at 7:15 to set up and prepare for the morning eclipse, first time this week that the weather looked promising. A excellent reporter from Radio Humberside was with us for a few hours and later a TV reporter joined us to report the rare and spectacular event to the media.

We had around 45 visitors including the local nursery and one coming from as far as Scarborough as it was very misty and cloudy there.

We were very lucky with the weather and it only clouded up at the time of the maximum for a short time making it difficult to see.

We took pictures every 30 seconds which we shall make into a movie and post it on this web site so keep looking.

It was an even really worth watching especially when the last one was 1999 and the next in 2024 [in the UK] so make a date with the next one!


The Solar Eclipse was followed by  a Lunar eclipse in ---------  where we took photos every 30 seconds. This took place at 3:00 in the morning so most people would be fast asleep then?
