Lunar Eclipse Nattie clocked at 2.2km/h

Lunar Eclipse Photos

August 30th, 2007 at 02:14am

“Better late than never” is a phrase I use far too often.

I have finally uploaded the photos of the lunar eclipse that I shot from the top of Mount Ainslie. They are available on the photo gallery at http://photos.samuelgordonstewart.com/lunar07

As the shadow of the earth was moving across the moon I took photos every five minutes…unfortunately the moon was too bright (and I don’t have the appropriate filters) to get a decent photo of the moon prior to the eclipse, but I did get some good photos of Canberra while I was on Mount Ainslie.

Some highlights include:

Canberra from Mount Ainslie
Partial Lunar Eclipse
Full Lunar Eclipse

The full set of full size photos are available using the link above.

    We had to watch it through clouds up here in Brisbane Samuel.
    You could see it, but it was hazy.
    I hope 2011 is a clearer night.

    Hey, did anyone see any UFO activity that night?
    I mean with so many looking to the skies at once it must have been hard for the little bug-eyed saucer drivers to hide.
    I was abducted by aliens once, they returned me with a note which read, please earth people we do not take empties.
    The Truth Is Out There…
