La Bella Luna



We had the most wonderful view of the lunar eclipse at about 1:00 am.  
With a clear, dark sky and a pleasant temperature outside we watched it through tripod mounted binoculars.  Just gorgeous.


Not my photo, this was taken from Perth.

Great photo. We were disappointed because it was cloudy.

We were lucky with the weather, we seemed to have one of the few clear views on the east coast, Sydney we could see was quite cloudy, Melbourne was having some enormous storm and Brisbane was also cloudy.

We also had a great view of Jupiter and three of its moons.

No telescope, we used to have one, but now find the binoculars just as good for things like the moon.

Cool! The last lunar eclipse I saw the sky was full of clouds so it wasn't much. That's great viewing.

Indeed, this is by far the best view I've had of a lunar eclipse. Well worth staying up for. :)

Wonderful! We could see the end of the eclipse here because the Moon appearead on the horizon after 4 pm and was hidden behind the forest. Still it was fantastic - and then the night was cloudless and the Moon was shinning like a big spotlight, casting the shadows. It was gorgeous but Badík was not sleeping and kept barking and so I was not sleeping either:-)
Thank you for the picture! The next full Moon eclipse is announced in 2015:-)

We didn't have the right conditions or position to see this, pity. I'm glad someone got a good view.
