Unfortunatly we had a massive cloud bank block the early stages of the Lunar Eclipse. We had set our alarm for 6pm (that was when the moon was supposed to rise for us here in Western Victoria) so we wouldn’t miss it. The kids and I traipsed up the hill, with the binoculars and the camera, only to be confronted with grey, grey skies in the east.
At about 7pm I was able to get this shot, which I was still pretty happy with.
Earlier in the evening we did have a pretty impressive sunset in the west. Our old tractor and a big gum were silhouetted quite nicely.
