Last Wednesday - as in June 15th 2011 - was, as you probably know by now, a night when there was a full moon and a lunar eclipse. So, with camera at the ready, we - Kelly and I - waited for sunset, and for a chance to capture photos of the eclipse.
Kelly said it was a beautiful sunset, so I told him to take a couple of photos for me to post on here. So, he did, and here they are:
The eclipse should have been happening some time between sunset and 11:00 pm here. I'm assuming it did - especially since my Mam said she saw it - but we couldn't get in to a position where buildings weren't blocking our view of the moon during that time. We tried, and tried, and tried some more. But no luck. *Sigh*
When the moon finally came in to view (around midnight) it was too late. We figured we'd get a photo though; at least then we had something to show for our evening of watching the sky. So, here's the photo we got:
According to my Mam the eclipse was only visible as a partial eclipse in our area anyway.
I still would have liked to get a photo though...
