About this image

Second expedition to the 'wind swept' hill on the edge of Sheffield to get a view of  this one. We were thwarted by a cloud bank that stubbornly clung to the horizon the previous night. I am proud to say my wife and daughter were sufficiently motivated to come and see the 'Christmas Star'!

We saw a few others who had made the trip as well..

No laptops etc., so exposure not optimal, but I think there is enough to identify the event.
