Visibility IV / V
For once, great weather if the wind isn’t down. Heat just over twenty degrees at the beginning and no sprouts from which thanks to the wind. The weak cloud material was separable in the direction of the horizon but not disturbingly thick and otherwise there was a clear sky.
But the sky was too light at first. The dim, completely darkened moon refused to appear even though it must have been well above the horizon. Vega and Deneb were already visible. The opposite shore in the direction of which the eclipse takes place is three kils away, so the moon was not left behind the trees.
After the maximum has already passed at 23:46, I separate the moon disk extremely weakly with binoculars from the sky. It was already about 4 ° high, but the sun was nothing more than just 4.6 ° below the horizon. Perhaps Ursa could take this into account in her bulletins when instructing to monitor lunar eclipses that begin at sunset.
A party also came from a nearby cottage to admire the eclipse. It happened to come a couple of minutes after I had first seen the moon itself. However, it took just over ten minutes that all of them had managed to find the moon in the sky. So dimly it appeared at first. Following the end of the eclipse was then already a routine task, and even the illuminating night clouds were shyly visible.
