LUNAR ECLIPSE 2000

21st January, 2000

Sorry - these are the best I can do at the moment ! I took a reasonable video and then took these pictures with my cheap digital camera from my 19th century television.

Here in Switzerland the eclipse was early morning. I got up at 5.00 am, by which time (at least, by the time I got outside) totality had set in. The moon was a dull orange glow in the sky, with the outer limb (nearest the penumbra) noticeably lighter. At about 6.00 am the moon disappeared behind the mountain, still in totality.
