Eclipsed!

13 Dec

We experienced a lovely combination of a full moon, complete lunar eclipse and fine weather on the 10th of December.  (Usually, my chances to observe astral phenomena are hampered by inclement weather)

I wish I had an SLR camera and decent tripod (the moon was at a very high elevation), but had to make do with our compact.  You can see the results here…

“And so it begins”…  At about 10 PM local time.

At about 10:30

Near complete. At about 11 PM.  The lack of light was more than my camera could handle…
