Partial Lunar Eclipse 19th Nov was created by Fermidox

Partial phase begins at 7.18am from Limerick but Moonset is at 8.05 almost an hour before maximum eclipse... and the forecast is "cloudy and misty on Thursday night and still largely dry with just the odd patch of light rain and drizzle... staying dry and cloudy for Friday". Doesn't look great.

I suppose we had better set the alarm clocks for 6am on Friday morning. 
That's just in case there is the odd clear bit of sky. 
If anyone does see this partial lunar eclipse it will be the boring eclipse ever.
Still they all count.  

Clear skies from Aubrey.

Would it not be a picturesque setting to see the half-eclipsed moon hanging over the horizon Aubrey? I can't recall many with that alignment before.

I'm thinking though with the mountains to my SW I'm going to be hard pressed to see much of it even with clear skies...

The penumbral phase of the eclipse has started alright.
My time is 7.09am.

While there is a definite darkening in the sky... Too many low lying clouds are preventing me from seeing the Moon this morning :(

My wife and I saw the first minute of the partial lunar eclipse from 7.19 to 7.20am.
After that the moon descended into a substantial amount of high and distant cloud.
It was also going down into some coniferous trees anyway. 
This was our 5th partial lunar eclipse. 
And it definitely was the least interesting. 
At no time did either of us use any optical equipment. 

Very best regards to everyone from Aubrey.

As Finbarr said - very well done to you and Valerie on observing some of the partial lunar eclipse this morning.

Clear skies,

Darren.
