Stop Press The Unbeliever - makes Space Weather

Hi all

I'm just as shocked as you all are - The Unbeliever (aka David Chandler) has made it to Space Weather.

BTW here are my poultry efforts. I am eclipsed by the quality of images presented thus far. in some way my camera was affected by the heat at lostock , and I forgot to take darks and flats etc.... pay the price for the "cheap" thrill of getting the images. Mate what a sight.

Taken with a box brownie on three sticks held together with chewie, and focussed with a kellogs plastic magnifyer. Oh ok it was with a canon 350D, severely heat stressed

Houghy - you too have made it to Space Weather - looks like David has linked space weather to his images from IISAC. Which includes you (you famous man you!!)
