Total Lunar Eclipse 21st February 2008


I sat outside, early hours of this morning waiting for the total lunar eclipse.

Huddled sitting on a rug, with blankets and warm clothing, hoping the clouds would move away.

Luckily they did long enough for me to capture these images.

I spent a lot of the time leaning against my chair nodding off....or using the binoculars to view the totality.

It's wonderful to see stars in such close proximity to a full moon, the blackness of space around that shining lunar disk is a sight not often seen.....

I took full advantage of it.....:0)

First chance to image the Moon in 2008

Tonight has been the first chance I have had to image the Moon. 

The past few weeks have been WET!............VERY WET!....it seems to have been raining forever here in Pembrokeshire. 

Luckily the clouds moved away tonight just long enough to capture this image, and about five others.

Here's hoping 2008 will bring Clear Skies......AND LESS RAIN!!!
