About this image

One of the first images received from Kent University's Beacon observatory using observing time supported by the Europlanet Project.

The image was captured using an R band filter. Nice to see that the brightening has not faded away again and that this result is broadly in line with the observations by Mike Harlow and Nick James.

Note: I am not the observer, merely the recipient.
