A Partial Lunar Eclipse for the past
Click on the image to enlarge. This is a sequence of shots from the partial eclipse of October 17 2005. I didn't think it would work, but it did. You can see the umbra, the inner shadow, move over the Moons pole, in the last frame you can see a slight darkening of the pole from the prenumbra. Not bad. There is a total Lunar eclipse on August 28 next year which we will see from here. Lets hope the weather allows me to image it.
