Eclipse1

Well for once a celestial event took place at sociable hours!  Every July and August here on Paros we are treated to a fine meteor shower—shooting stars.  But the best time for viewing is in the early morning before dawn—not my time of day.

 

 

Eclipse2But last night the Eclipse of the Moon started here at 9:50 P.M. and reached 100% about 10:20 P.M.  There were a few wispy clouds but all in all a good show.

The first photo is about 75% into the eclipse.

The third is at 100%.  If you zoom in you can see the lunar landscape a bit.

The last is about 50% out of the eclipse and obviously too much light for a photo.
