Silver assessed expedition.
All the hard work has finally paid off.
The weather was kind to us during the day but bitterly cold at night.
This made for great night of stargazing.
“Quite a moving experience” claimed a tearful Mr Kidd clearly overwhelmed by the beauty of the night sky!
Well done to all those who braved the elements.
Special thanks go to the ‘Technical support staff’!
