February 20 Lunar Eclipse

These aren’t much, but I’m no photographer either.

For awhile we had good visibility of last night’s lunar eclipse here in southern Nevada. Ian and I went back in to get some coats at about 6:20 pm (PST -0800UT) and got distracted by some dog vs. cat shenanigans. When we got back outside about 6:45 pm, the then partial eclipse was obscured by cloud cover moving in from the east-southeast. The sky is still overcast as I write this the next day. Oh well.

This is a crop from that picture showing the Earth’s shadow (the Penumbra) on the Moon.

One thought on “February 20 Lunar Eclipse”

  1. Here in our part of Germany it was cloudy all night – the first day after two weeks of great sunny weather with not a wisp of cloud in sight. The other thing that kept me from watching the eclipse was the fact that it was between 3 and 6 am over here. 🙄
