UKAI Lunar Challenge Winners
« on: 19:05:01, 18 March, 2015 »



UKAI Lunar Challenge 2014-2015 Results.



1st off we'd like to thank those who entered this competition, even though we would have liked to see more entries. 

But you have to be in it to win it. (as the Lottery says)  due to the lack of entries we can only offer a 1st and 2nd prize.



We were looking for an "Artistic" approach on our closet neighbour the moon and only a couple of entrants used this with their images.

So with thanks to  Altair Astro & Modern Astronomy for offering the prizes for this.

We can now announce the two Winners.

1st Prize goes to Don aka Starlight With his flower moon.

2nd Goes to Dave  aka Gremlin with his different approach to the mountain range.

Well done to the both of you.
