Previous to last night my only experience of an earthquake was a very minor shoogle while I was offshore Qatar, and thought it was just the crane driver being rough with a load landing.

Last night however! Was woken up at 3.07am local, with everything moving randomly, cupboard doors rattling etc. real WTF moment

Turns out there was a Magnitude 6.6, 48km WNW of Polis, off the west coast of Cyprus.

I guess once the weather clears and I get the observatory open again, I'll need to recheck the polar alignment on the scope! Laugh | :laugh:

Thankfully all good, no damage here, but quite exciting at the time!
