Visibility Unclassified

The complete lunar eclipse on September 27/28, 2015 was almost completely behind the clouds in Turku. It was only around the first contact that the Moon flashed from the gap of the clouds, making it possible to detect that the eclipse had already begun. At its maximum, however, the sky remained stubbornly closed. This is a partial observation concerning only the complete phase of the eclipse. The whole time of the eclipse (as far as we tried to detect it) has its own separate observation .

Picture from the complete phase time at 05.52.
