BASA’s Chief Astronomer Is a Celebrity in England

The Olympics aren’t the only thing generating news right now in England.

Neighbor Clifton, Chief of Astronomical Research for the Bernal Aeronautics and Space Administration (BASA), reports that his awesome photo of the Transit of Venus as seen through Sutro Tower was accepted for publication in the prestigious British magazine Astronomy Now:

Clifton writes:

I submitted that photo of the Transit of Venus I took from Bernal Hill to “Astronomy Now” magazine in England. Much to my surprise, I received a copy of August edition of the magazine and a check for 10 British Pounds in the mail yesterday.

BASA is now internationally recognized!

Call it one giant leap for Bernalkind.
