Did you watch the lunar eclipse last night?
Perhaps ‘watch’ isn’t the right word, unless you did spend a couple of hours just staring at the sky.
It was quite something to experience seeing the moon gradually change from a bright white orb to something that looked a bit like a coppery-coloured 5-watt lightbulb, and then transition through to bright white again.
From my vantage point – roughly 51°25 N and 0°51 W – we had a completely clear sky last night so could observe the phenomenon in its entirety. I took a couple of photos with my Nokia N73. Posted one to my moblog. Rather a pathetic picture, actually, compared to some others! See the Flickr eclipse set for more really great photos.
