eclipse and eclipse

So it seems I took a useful picture of the lunar eclipse after all (it was only partial here):

Not bad for a hand-held shot, if I say so myself.

At this site you can see an eclipse of a different kind. A solar eclipse… on Mars!

  1. Nice shot – I like the graininess – lends an exotic/alien air 🙂

    So, last night I was out on our balcony disposing of Santa’s pudding and chomping on the reindeer’s carrot when I spotted the moon rise! It was RED! And still partially eclipsed. I was so excited I nearly woke the kids! Oops.

    Merry Christmas Patty 🙂

    • Thanks. I had to admit I was very surprised that one of the pictures turned out this good. Imagine how well I could have done had I been bothered to cart a tripod with me.

      LOL. Yes, you could be forgiven to think not much has changed in appearance now the Moon is no longer full. Oops indeed.
