Jonathan Shanklin honoured

Ron Arbour informs me of this exciting news. Jonathan Shanklin, former BAA Comet Section Director, is having a glacier on the Antarctic Peninsula named after him!

Congratulations Jonathan!

That's great news.   Well done.  We can but hope for a slowing down, even better a reversal, of climate change heating, so that the glacier may out live us.

Shanklin Glacier

Congratulations, Jonathan. I think we should use the area and volume of the glacier as the 'in-house' BAA standards for the dimensions of minor bodies. Probably not very stable standards, mind... Better stick with Giraffes and the principality that is Wales.
