Description
It was a beautiful summer morning in Copenhagen and the local astronomical league had set up many scopes at a beach overlooking the straight between Denmark and Sweden. The low Sun was viewed across the water and I think that this helped reduce air turbulence. There were 500-600 happy people and the mood was almost as during a total solar eclipse.
