The changing colour of the sky during the eclipse was spectacular! From full-moon white to light-pollution red and back again in just two hours! In the photograph, each Moon is separated by just 15 minutes. The same photographs are available as a small 900kb time-lapse movie.

Photo details: Canon 10D

The complete lunar eclipse with about 2 minute intervals. I also made a gif animation of it but it's 1.7MB and too large to upload to spaceweather. View the Animation

I put togther this animation using a series of 30 individual frames snapped through the eyepiece of my 5" Mak-Cas telescope. The series starts and and ends about 30 minutes inside the penumbral phase.

We were blessed with clear skies for the whole event here in the midlands, UK. The Moon high in the sky, fully emmersed in the Earth's shadow was a wonderful sight with almost metallic shades of copper, bronze and Silver during totality

I used my new William Optics FLT-132 f/7 APO telescope on the Losmandy G11 w/Gemini goto mount. I used TMB field flattener behind the telescope for these pictures.
