Lunar eclipse tonight! We Like the Moon!

I love a full moon, but when there’s a total lunar eclipse as well? So cool.

I don’t have the right kind of photography gear to take a picture of the event -plus, I’m a bit lazy and took this from the comfy, warm confines of my living room – but I snapped a picture to see if I could at least catch the colour of the shadow. It’s a reddish eclipse and will be judged on the Danjon Scale of Lunar Eclipse Brightness after the moon is at the stage of greatest coverage, which is around 23:21 UTC.

  1. I had the same problem, although because of the way our house is positioned I had to go and sit down the end of the garden to take a picture. Having said that there are some stunning pictures on Flickr from people who don’t have to contend with streetlights!

  2. Hi Richard!

    Yeah, one day I’ll have the right lens for taking pics of the moon, but right now I’m going to go enjoy the ones on flickr with you. 🙂
