Lunar Eclipse: Umbra {blogging in real time}

{about 12:25}

definitely see the shadow at 7 o’clock…

The hot chocolate was good and warming. I haven’t woken the kids up yet. I’m waiting for something more impressive so I don’t hear, “is that all?” Father’s watching the eclipse from his laptop as I post. He said it’s the only way to view an eclipse.


I have the camera set on 1/400 and F8, for anyone who’s interested.




I’ve been working my way down: now I’m at 1/160 and F8.
Time to wake the kids! Next pictures will be of totality (supposed to start at 1:40 or so).
