Total lunar eclipse - 28.7.2018 at 00.16 Pyhäntä, Tavastkenkä Observation number 75801

Visibility IV / V

Jorma Ryske, Etelä-Suomen kosmol. seura

The summer night in Northern Ostrobothnia is still very bright and finding a completely darkened moon was difficult at first. With my naked eyes I suddenly snapped from the shallow of the moon over the fields at 11:50 p.m. The attached cell phone picture was taken at 12:16 a.m., when the left edge of the moon had just begun to brighten. This lunar eclipse "diamond ring" phenomenon was a great sight to the naked eye.
