We cheated with the above award winning photo of the eclipse which was not taken in Selsey. It is so good we thought it was appropriate to add it to this event and Dr Mason was busy tracking the 2017 eclipse as well. Thanks to our good friend Melanie for allowing us to use it. More great photographs can be found on her website – Melnietphotography.uk
