"Dawn" in Scotland

The Scots are here!

Robin Baxter, a Member of the Wigtownshire Astronomical Society decided to travel from Newton Stewart to the Mull of Galloway, Scotland’s most southerly point. He thought this would be the ideal location for his "Dawn" activity. He had this to say:

"It was overcast during our visit to the Mull of Galloway and the temperature was zero Celsius. The Meade telescope, bottle of Scotch whisky, 2 drinking glasses, piece of tartan material along with sign containing IYA logos and Scottish and Portuguese flags were placed beside the information sign and photographed for posterity."

He also sent these photos:

  1. Dear Robin, you are a braver man than me!

    Zero degrees, even with the warmth provided by the whisky, is not my idea of a pleasant day...

    So, hoping for sunny days, Slaandjivaa (I hope I wrote it correctly).
