Lunar Eclipse Gallery
Sept. 7, 2006

Summary: On Sept. 7, 2006, the full Moon dipped into Earth's shadow for about 90 minutes, producing a partial lunar eclipse visible from Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia: map. At maximum eclipse, only about 19% of the Moon was covered, but that was enough for a pretty display.

As the moon cleared a low cloud bank, the small crowd gathered on the beach here in Selsey were treated to a glorious display of reds and oranges. I was surprised just how defined the shadow was, as the moon only just clipped the umbral shadow. Canon 300D at prime focus of WO SD66 scope. 1/80s @ ISO 800

Despite scudding clouds and eventually rain, managed to get a few shots of the big dark eerie bite tasting the rabbit. Taken around the time of greatest eclipse in the AM with an 8 inch dob and Nikon CP 4500 digicam.

Although I had doubts about pursuing this evening's partial eclipse due to the low altitude of the moon during the eclipse for my geographical location, the Greek gods were with me and provided for a stunning event, ideal weather conditions and relatively good seeing in spite of the low lunar altitude. I am happy to present you with an image at eclipse maximum as well as a digital mosaic centered on eclipse maximum as well as partial stages 30 minutes (before/after and during the umbral stage) and 60 minutes (before/after and during the penumbral stage). The partial eclipse was such that it gave the ground-based observer the impression that the 'top' of the moon had been chopped off.

Pumpkin Moon, The eclipsed moon looked just like a large pumpkin as it rose through thin cloud during the middle of the eclipse!

At the maximum, the moon was just over the fluorescent light on top of a building.
