You guys have done a superb job. Well done to all on getting those great images!. I think we can call this a complete success. Brian thought hard for his catch, by the sound of things it turned into an 'eclipse chase' - and you got a cracker result.

Paul, I would love to hear about the reactions from everyone at work when they saw the eclipse. It's great to see one, and even better to share it with others!

John, talk about an amazing day, an eclipse followed by a funnel (which prompted TORRO's alert) all before mid day. I can't take any credit for contacting the correct people, you deserve the credit for getting such a good set of images under pressure and on such short notice. Won't forget this day in a hurry. I know you have been after a funnel for some time now - and you got one. Let's hope for others. August has got of to a great start!. It would be some going if we also seen the Perseids and lunar eclipse  Smiley

I haven't even looked at my images yet, been out doing weather imaging all afternoon and evening.
