Total lunar eclipse - 28.9.2015 at 04.30 - 28.9.2015 at 06.55 Siikalatva Observation number 43032

Visibility IV / V

Jarmo Kalaoja, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

I woke up by chance and the light of the moon came out the window through the clouds. The sky became completely cloudless, suitably at the beginning of the eclipse, although the forecast promised another and, despite a sore throat, always had to watch it in between. Perhaps the most spectacular lunar eclipses I’ve seen, the dawn of the morning and the proximity of the horizon, I guess. At the perfect stage, the Moon was darker than usual for me In the last picture, the Moon is already on the horizon and looks just like the usual crescent.
