Details:
We had ISS flying over the eclipsed Moon, we had the first NLC in Hungary (it was hard to make a panorama with it and the eclipse as they were in the opposite direction), the deep reds of Moon were amazing beside the Milky Way which was well visible during the darkest phase - and we even saw some meteors (not caught on pic). My husband was my help with photographing and battling with the great amount of mosquitoes trying to feast on us... The colour of the eclipse was a bit darker than the former ones I've seen, but it was a central eclipse, so I don't know if any volcanic material in the northern hemisphere was there to darken it even more. It was an amazing time to spend outside and observe such a beautiful celestial event!
