The Moon played with the clouds and with our nerves at the beginning of the eclipse, then everything went extremely smoothly as the night fell. Camera - Canon EOS 350D.

In Portugal the moon eclipsed was born in the phase of totality, and only became visible in the hours of nautical twilight at 21h43 ( local time). In the picture we can see the different tone of the track of the eclipse, while the Moon is moving out of the shadow cone of the Earth. Image obtained in Portinho Arrábida, Portugal, near the Atlantic Ocean. I wrote in the sand with a rock, the phenomenon that was happening ... a " Moon Eclipse". Sum of 357 images each 10 seconds, with a total integration of 59.5 minutes. Canon 50D -ISO200 16mm F/5

Absolutely beautiful. The cold weather did not stop eclipse enthusiasts joining the Soutpansberg Astronomy Club to see the evening’s show. A 10 inch Newtonian Reflector with a Foton AstroCam attached was used to projects stunning images of the Moon while an 8 inch Schmidt Cassegrain was used for visual observing.
