Total lunar eclipse - 21.1.2019 at 07.58 - 21.1.2019 at 08.00 Espoo Observation number 80790

Visibility Unclassified

Timo Salonen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Attached is a lunar eclipse image at 7.58 a.m., when the circus of light was already opening. I photographed the roof of the house and also got trees to scale the picture. Nikon P900 camera. A tripod was included, but I hadn’t practiced using the cell phone remote shutter and the pictures shook. I took this by hand. Reasonable for that. Yes, good preparation is important. Next time then. At full stage, the moon was surprisingly dark. At first I thought it was behind the clouds.
