Is it even worthwhile bothering to try see it? Bearing in mind I'm in Dublin city and a clear eastern horizon is gonna mean a bit of a trek.

It's worse than that, it's physics Jim!

Yes! Go take a look now! Nice view of it from here. Much better than I expected. I grabbed a few shots too but won't get a chance to work on them till the weekend.

Clear skies,

Just tried to photograph it, but I could'nt believe it when the area where the moon was rising was cloudy, either side of that was clear :evil:

I just had a look now through the binos, I saw a slight dimming on the top right hand side of the moon, but certainly nothing spectacular.

How much % eclpise in march next does anyone know?

Only just got to see it at about 21:00. I think I missed anything that might have been interesting. Oh well.

Finally an eclipse on a clear night and bloody houses and trees get in the way of it!

Dear Friends,

I am already ducking for stating that we had perfect weather for the event ... and here is the proof:

www.perseus.gr/Astro-Eclipses-2006-09-07.htm and www.perseus.gr/Astro-Eclipses-2006-09-07b.htm ....

I am anxiously waiting for the next such major event next spring. I am afraid the solar eclipse in a couple of weeks is not worth the trouble to travel for it or, otherwise, I would have gone for it.

Best wishes from Greece!

Anthony.

For once it was perfectly clear here in Kerry. So with compas in hand I pointed the camera at a gap in the hills and got this (out of focus) image at 20:42bst.



A little later 20:59bst it had cleared the turbines,



this is the second partial in a year and clear skies for both :P

I wish you didn't say that, you have just doomed us to clouds for all next eclipses

Remember the last total eclipse - in autumn 2004? Jaysus that was not a nice night!

And thanks Anthony and Michael - now I almost feel like I saw it myself. :D

Hi,
Got a nice view of the Partial Lunar Eclipse rising over the Irish Sea from Skerries, Co. Dublin.
First seen at 19.04 UT as it appeared large as a pale orange apparition.

Uploaded a picture to the files section on this site (not sure of how to link to it here). It called "lunar eclipse jon.jpg". Taken with a Pronto operating
at a focal length of 384mm.

Hi all,

Took this pic last night of the eclipse, it was a lovely view, especially the moon illusion.

Taken in the playing fields in Gonzaga Ranealgh at South Dublin AS's first meeting of the year.

Not a bad way to start the year. :D

Some really nice photos there guys, makes up for the lack of a spectacle the rest of us did not get to see!

Keep up the good work!

I'd been looking forward to this for weeks. Then I ended up in London yesterday, and a delayed late flight back - so I missed all but a few fleeting glimpses of the eclipse from the plane. GRRR! (work is interfering with my astronomy).
Still the forecast for viewing over the weekend is pretty good so I'll get a full-moon montage done tonight I hope.

Clear Skies,
