Total lunar eclipse

The eclipse of the moon was visible from many parts of the world, but luckily occurred at a relatively sociable hour of the evening in western Europe.

I didn’t have my tripod, so the sequence of photos above were taken with the camera hand-held, making it impossible to take a long exposure during totality. But at least the final frame gives an idea of the colour of the eclipsed moon.

Key times (in UTC) during the eclipse were as follows:

  • Moon enters umbra: 2130
  • Totality begins: 2244
  • Totality ends: 2358
  • Moon leave umbra: 0111
