DescriptionThis image was taken from the observing site of Moray's Astronomy Club, SIGMA. There were clear skies to the north and west, but thick cloud cover to the south and east. However, there were some breaks in the fast-moving clouds which allowed us tantalising glimpses of the event. It was a very good start to the new observing season.
