Hull and East Riding

Astronomical Society

In memoriam:  Tony Scaife

It is with great sadness that we had to bid farewell to one of our longest standing members, Tony Scaife  (lifetime member) in 2021.

Tony was president of the society for 7 years from 1996, and he passed away in January 2021 after a short stay in hospital. He was not only a former President of HERAS but was president of East Riding Astronomers for many years before his wife Lorraine took over this post, but he remained a very active member.

Here is Tony with Patrick Moore in June 1998 in Hull City Hall
