The moon rose with great atmospheric distortion and yet it was easy to see the the dim shading on the top of the moon as it had just entered the penumbral stage minutes before moon rise. Beautiful!

Photo details: Canon 10D, 1/125 seconds at f/8, ISO 200, 400mm L

It was a fairly bright eclipse, but what surprised me most were the incredible blue and turquoise shades of Earth's penumbra. Photographs do not do it justice.

Red moon, red dome. The photo was taken from the ledge of the telescope dome that houses the 26cm Merz refractor (installed at Sonnenborgh in 1863). A few hundred people observed the Lunar eclipse trough the Merz telescope of the more than 150 year old observatory.

Photo details: Fujifilm S5600, F3.2, 10s, ISO-100.
