This picture was taken before the eclipse began--but it's remarkable anyway, because it shows the International Space Station gliding between Earth and the Moon. [more]

Clouds prevailed all evening so I was only able to capture a few decent shots of the event. It was great to see, nonetheless. These digital images were captured with a Canon 10D using Canon

Here is a set of three moon pictures. Each picture position has been calculated taking into account capture time, moon angular diameter and moon angular speed. This view gives the opportunity to compare the size of earth's shadow and the moon. These pictures were captured in North of France with CASIO QV4000 + SP40mm eyepiece + MEADE LX200 8" at F/6.3.

Frigid temps but a beautiful site with the bright Milky Way overhead and the orangish-red totally eclipsed moon hanging in the sky near Taurus and the Pleiades. 6-image composite using Nikon digital camera.

The pictures were taken using a 200/1000 Newton Reflector and Nikon Coolpix 4500. Fortunately, the cloudy sky cleared up right at the beginning of the eclipse!
