Winner - ASTRON-JIVE Daily Image 2015

Submitter: Michael Garrett
Description: Last year, we established a new annual award for the best AJDI of the year. As is now the tradition, the winner was announced during the New Year's speeches.

The winner for 2015 is ...(drrumm rroll)... Alexander Shulevski. Alexander presented a LOFAR movie of the entire sky using only the super-terp LOFAR stations during a significant thunder storm. The associated lightening discharges are clearly seen in the movie, including many near-simultaneous multiple events - see: http://www.astron.nl/dailyimage/pictures/20150721/movie.gif

Also by a tradition of sorts, the winner of this award receives a bottle of Jameson's Irish Whiskey (see image above*). The Jameson distillery is very well connected to the world of radio science - born in Scotland, the famous distiller Andrew Jameson (1783 -1856) was the father of Annie Jameson (1840-1920), and Annie was the mother of one Guglielmo Marconi, Nobel prize winner in Physics (1909), and the father of wireless (radio) communication!
