Prizes handed to Capture the Moon winners
The two happy winners of IEEC’s “Capture the Moon” social media competition were officially awarded their prizes. 

Today, Friday 22 November 2019, Dr. Ignasi Ribas, Director of the Institute of Space Studies of Catalonia (IEEC), and Dr. Marc Ribó, Director of the Montsec Astronomical Observatory (OAdM), welcomed first prize winner Francesc Masip at IEECs’ headquarters. For his wonderful photo sequence of the lunar eclipse, as seen on the night sky above Barcelona, Francesc Masip was awarded first prize — a refracting telescope 90/900 EQ2 SkyWatcher.

A second prize, consisting of a binocular starter kit ORION 10x50, was received by Anabel Pérez, who entered the contest with a picture showing the view of the Moon from Zaragoza.

The Institute of Space Studies of Catalonia (IEEC) launched the “Capture the Moon” social media campaign with the occasion of the 50th anniversary since the first humans set foot on the Moon. Users were invited to share pictures of the moon snapped with a phone or camera on their Facebook or Twitter account and tag us with @IEECspace on Facebook, respectively @IEEC_space on Twitter.

The contest was a success and a large number of images were received.
