This is a quick and dirty image, little time for processing as you can imagine.

Couldn't ask for better conditions here. Really nice in the 15x70s. I suspect this could be a really dark eclipse. Hard to see the limb of the moon even in binoculars.

GREEN WITH ENVY

CLOUDS CLOUDS CLOUDS.....The moon is a hazy blur from here, cannot even focus. :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

Enjoy the clear skies. I expect to see lots of pictures.

i got a nice one with the area in umbra shadow by shoving the webcam gain right up. Looks really dark. There haven't been any eruptions lately though...

Great view from here.
Almost half the moon covered now.

I really must think of something interesting to use as a tag line!

I keep a tab on the weather using the hourly updated IR satellite image.

Looks like a real bummer for folks in the South West...

Moon is definitely starting to have a red tint now... nice and a bit eerie as well... I cn understand why in the olden days people thought that it was a special messagefrom the Gods out there in the sky.

Sky is getting noticeably darker. I'm just watching this one and leaving the camera to one side - it's a while since I saw a lunar eclipse. Deep red colour on the southern region of the Moon. Hope everyone else's skies are as clear.
