New Year’s Eve Lunar Eclipse

We called over to a friend’s house yesterday evening and even though I had heard there would be an eclipse I completely forgot about it. My Dad even texted me at 6.25pm that it’d be happening between 7pm and 8pm but I still forgot. Lucky he rang my wife and she reminded me of the event!

Unfortunately I only had my Sigma 18-200 zoom. The Canon 75-300 was at home so this is a severely cropped shot of the moon. I thought there was going to be a full eclipse but it wasn’t to be and only a shadow fell across the face of our nearest celestial neighbour.
