Lucia Eclipse of the moon

I hope everyone's taking the time to watch it as it's happening right now!

Very cool. I'm hoping that we'll get a blood moon!

Too cloudy here, Lucyna. ratz!

Yup, I saw the whole thing! Right from the first 'bite' to the red moon now. Took some photos, but they'll probably be rubbish.

Lucyna said...

KG, that's a pity. It's currently the colour of washed out blood from here. I thought at first I wouldn't get to see it for long as some big clouds covered it, but they're mostly blowing across the sky just below it.

KG said...

Yes! The clouds have cleared. What a beautiful sight. :-)

Lucyna said...

Thanks, Fletch, for the pictures!

Oh good, KG, I'm glad you got to see it!

MrsTips, our eldest son and I stayed up far too late watching it. I'm off to buy a telescope now, I'm hooked!

I love events such as this. I woke Miss 9 and took her out on the cold windy deck to see the Luna-Rosa.

This morning she berated me for not waking her up. She could not remember being woken, wrapped in a blanket and carried outside.

Maybe she will have a deja vue moment in seven years???

Compared to the brilliant disc I though the darkened moon had a 3D floating effect and a heightened sense of distance and space.

It reminded me of someone holding an egg up to a lightbulb :)
