In the Sky

The eclipse

The eclipse 

The media were full of hyperbole about a "blood moon" in the sky. They were referring to a lunar eclipse, where the reddish light reflected from sunsets on the earth would be the only lighting of the part of the moon in the earth's shadow. Although we were perfectly placed to see the entire show, clouds prevented a view of all but the final stage. This was taken with the Pentax and 400mm Tokina lens. A few years ago I managed to catch a full lunar eclipse sequence, with my old Lumix FZ20: you can see that in the note.

Well done, George! We had complete cloud cover. I have seen a remarkable capture taken by a contact in Bargara, beautifully red.

I managed to see the moon early on ... before the sun had set and the moon looked
no different to normal ... cloud came later so there was no chance to see it oOo
