Friday 5 January, 1894

Royal Observatory Greenwich in the snow © NMM
The cold was very severe last night & throughout this day, much snow falling
Very little can be done by Mr Plummer or Mr Dyson.

H.H. Turner, Chief Assistant

Rebekah Higgitt says.....
Frank Dyson was soon to be Turner's succesor as Chief Assistant. He was already at Greenwich adding the skills of the practical astronomer to his mathematical knowledge gained at Cambridge.

5 January 2009 has also seen low temperatures at the ROG and some snow. However, work for curators, if not astronomers, continues despite the cold and cloudy skies.....
