What a wonderful time we had - no rain - no wind - no cloud, and the moon in the best place for me to see it. This was a sky watchers dream. I was surprised to find that no one else seemed to be outside looking at this most wonderful heavenly display. One neighbour thought 'What's that guy doing with a camera at this time of night'. A few minutes later she was outside with a big pair of binoculars enjoying the show too.
The image above was taken just before the eclipse took hold.
Because it became too dark during the eclipse for a handheld camera I have created the effect using Photoshop & Picasa.
