Total Eclipse of the Moon.
« on: June 15, 2011, 02:55:49 PM »
I read today that there is a total eclipse of the moon tonight around 9:00 pm (BST) Lasts 11 minutes if you are in the right places. As usual with these events the skies in lancashire are overcast at the moment and will probably be so until 9:11pm  ::) Might see if it is photographable at a suitable location later.

Spent a few minutes outside - half the horizon is clear of cloud - yep, you've guessed it, no sign of any celestial bodies at all. Wrong half clear. And it's only just getting dark.

I saw it!  I was a tad disappointed, though, having been promised a "spectacular blood red moon", I was expecting a massive ball of glowing red fire and you had to look really hard to see it because it was a very dark red.  I also realise you need a massive lens to photograph it, but I'm still posting my montage here - it might have a scarcity value if nothing else.  I actually preferred the shot of someone taking it on a compact and I bet all those people with iPhones got better results than I did!

@JustDave - Vienna, on the bank of the Danube canal.  Managed to find a nice little "beach" bar, so grabbed the end table, set up the tripod, had one hand on the camera and the other round the beer!  We were lucky, though, because at one point it looked as though we were going to have a massive storm, but thankfully, it blew over before the moon rose.

Our sky was covered in cloud, Then by 9 :30  they all went pink the whole sky was covered in pink. I put one of my photos in the gallery of the sunset and as much sky as I could get in on 18mm frame

Here is another shot taken a bit later
