Amazing! The media coverage was exciting and unforgettable, but there is nothing to beat an amateur photo. Thanks Denis!

Nice one Denis. I'm waiting for it to be clear at my remote observatory in Spain so I can make an attempt to capture it. Obviously it's clearer in Highland Scotland than South West Spain!
