Lunar Eclipse

#1
If you can, stick your heads out and look at the moon from now on for the next few hours and enjoy the eclipse.
A normal camera will do the trick for any piccies.

Looking good from Southern England. Absolutely superb sky; no cloud and crystal clear.

You can even see the change with the naked eye now! Use a pair of binoculars -and it is wonderful. Totality is in about one hour's time.

It's mega isn't it!

Perhaps I'll try and grab a phot if it as it nears totality!

If this gets moved, I'll drag it out and put it in Multinational HQ...

Good photo, Proximo.

Just past totality and the red tint is fading. Lovely night sky with Orion dipping to the west and Saturn to the right of the moon.

Any news on Uranus? :dwarf:

Hey Proximo.

I looked at the two photos (obviously taken at the same time) and on viewing the second, noticed a speck of dust on my screen. I wiped it, rubbed it and scraped it, but it's still there (Centre of moon, half past 3, 1 1/2").

Did the Millennium Falcon do a U-turn?

You sound like an educated type. Why is the moon tinted pink during the eclipse?

I'm not an educated type, but the moon is red cos the light from the sun has been 'filtered' by the Earth's atmosphere so only red light reaches the moon, which then looks red.

I could probably explain that a whole lot better if my missus weren't glaring at me!
