|Orson Bradbury in September up at PMO|
|Sunset - uh oh, that's a big cloud|
I peeked out the window a little before 11:00 p.m. pacific time and saw the shadow of the Earth just starting to nip at the full moon. So Husband and I got Orson out in the driveway and went and asked the next door neighbors to turn off their porch lights.
About 11:40, the moon was completely dark. Here are some of the photos I captured. When we started there was a big fat cloud right over the moon, but it went off thankfully.
|Full moon behind some cloud cover|
|The eclipse begins. Despite the big cloud - giving the photo the|
grainy appearance - you can see the shadow of the Earth
on the Moon
|This is how you know the world is round - you can see the curve|
of the Earth on the Moon
|More of the Moon is swallowed in shadow|
|The view not through the telescope|
|You can see some of the peachy / orangish color of the Moon|
in this photo
|And the full Moon gets smaller|
|The Moon is almost gone|
Did you get to see any of the eclipse? Please share your story.
