Thanks for the fab info, Deefstes, and best of luck with your shots of the century's darkest total lunar eclipse, as most scientists agree. Let alone 2011 or 2018 or whatever else is coming our way in this century. :clap: :clap: Waiting to reap the fruits of your labour (and maths) tomorrow. :clap: :clap:


Flat on my back on our trampoline, checking out the eclipse and Scorpio's stinger too.

Matthys, is there no moon over Wors Ester? :tongue: Cause it will be visible from anywhere in SA? :wink: :lol:

Me too, Jen! However, the sky is very clear this evening and the moon is climbing ever further from the light pollution.

That's what one never sees with a regular full moon - a fully lit Moon's disc with stars clear around it. :thumbs_up:

What a lovely place to see the eclipse, JoB. :dance: Did the animals howl during the event?

Delightful, MD. :clap: The last post is certainly interesting, and somewhat eerie, capturing the feel of the event. Love the others too. :thumbs_up:
