Lunar Eclipse

What a fabulous sight! Last night we had a total lunar eclipse and for the first time in my life it was a) happening at a time when I would be awake and b) happening in a clear sky.

The sky was completely clear, in fact we’d just had a beautiful day of blue skies and sunshine. It was very cold tho, so I was popping outside every 15 mins to get a look at how it was progressing – good thing that a lunar eclipse is so slow!

Unfortunately I didn’t have the equipment to photograph it, I would have needed a telescope to get more than a fuzzy dot so this pic is from someone with a little more stuff.

And it looks as though I was very lucky – was woken this morning by howling storms!
