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)

Nearby.. a lone dog howls..

The Full Mackerel Moon will be upon us on Monday,  nearby I can hear a dog practicing its lunar howling! Up above, the slow moving clouds...
