I once contributed a picture of interference in the tear layer of my baby's eye. At the time, so ~9 years ago, he already told me that he had problems with his sight.

"Les Cowley has decided to discontinue Atmospheric Optics.

It’s been online for 24 years, a geological era in terms of ‘Internet Time'. Over those years it’s been a pleasure and, more importantly, a privilege, to see and share your rare and magnificent images, learn from your brain-teasing sightings and to have your friendship.

It’s been fun – thanks for the ride!"
