Total lunar eclipse - 21.1.2019 at 06.45 - 21.1.2019 at 07.15 Kokkola Observation number 80781

Visibility IV / V

A complete lunar eclipse in Kälviä on 21 January 2019 at 7:00 am In the top picture, the moon in the deepest shade, completely darkened, around which the stars were visible. The darkened moon was darker than I thought, so I would estimate the color of the blackout by 2-3 degrees, maybe closer to 2 than 3. There was a lot of frost, ie 28 degrees and the sky was completely clear. In the following picture, just before the start of the complete phase. In the last darkened moon during the deepest phase. Images have not been processed.
