‘Fly Me To The Moon; Let me play among the stars…’
Pictures of today’s full moon and on its way to being eclipsed. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the shot of the total eclipse as was a bit tired, but was able to see it in all of its glory.

Abbey Road Studios:
Abbey Road Studios (formerly known as EMI Studios) is a recording studio located in the city of Westminster, London. It was established in November 1931 by the Gramophone Company, a predecessor of British music company EMI, which owned it until 2012. Abbey Road Studios is most notable as being the venue in the 1960s for innovative recording techniques adopted by The Beatles, Pink Floyd, the Hollies, Badfinger, and many more. One of its earliest world-famous artist clients was Paul Robeson, who recorded in December of 1931 and went on to record many of his best known songs there. Both the studios and zebra crossing have Grade II listed building status.
The Beatles: Abbey Road Album
Abbey Road was first released on 26th September, 1969. Abbey Road was the final Beatles album to be recorded but not their last to be released.
For the first time on a Beatles album, the front cover contained neither the group’s name nor the album title just that iconic photograph taken on the zebra crossing near the entrance to the studios in August 1969. Abbey Road entered the British album chart at no.1 in October and stayed there for a total of seventeen of its 81 weeks in the chart. In the US, it spent eleven weeks at #1 during its initial chart stay of 83 weeks. (Credit: http://www.thebeatles.com/album/abbey-road)

The Hillsborough stadium disaster left 96 Liverpool fans dead and 766 injured. They were watching their team play Nottingham Forest in an FA Cup semi-final at Sheffield Wednesday’s ground on 15th April 1989. The victims’ families have fought ever since to find out exactly what happened. The 12th September 2012 was a momentous day as the findings of the Hillsborough Independent Panel were published. Three months later the accidental death verdicts were quashed at the High Court paving the way for fresh inquests, being held in Warrington. These inquests continue to this day.

From the website: (https://www.stpauls.co.uk)
The present Cathedral, the masterpiece of Britain’s most famous architect Sir Christopher Wren, is at least the fourth to have stood on the site. It was built between 1675 and 1710, after its predecessor was destroyed in the Great Fire of London (in 1666), and services began in 1697.
This was the first Cathedral to be built after the English Reformation in the sixteenth-century, when Henry VIII removed the Church of England from the jurisdiction of the Pope and the Crown took control of the life of the church
