    Other notes: WOW!!! What a show...what a monster!!! Last time when I was as impressed, stunned and awe-struck as this night was way back in 19th of March 2001. To say it shortly...this was the most impressive corona show ever for me. Even then if dates like 6/7 April 2000, 11/12 April 2001, 22/23 October 2001 or 5/6 November 2001 are included to the count...Although i must say that overall it wasn't the most stunning big display, but especially the first corona that opened the show, was the most detailed and maybe also brightest corona that i have never seen. A true monster corona!
    Otherwise the show was quite diffuse and had only little details. The coronas were nice, but otherwise it lacked all the nice belts, sharp curtains and else... Also most of the time it was too high in the sky for me to get good photos of it.
