    Enjoy I have have seen a few most people dont think its anything special as when it starts looks like a normal moon during its phases until it becomes a total , then Earth Atmosphere reflects only the red spectrum

    It was great to see, settled early outside with some coffee... Was treated just before moonset to a transit of the ISS.

    I see next month we should be able to see all the visible planets and the moon simultaneously. I just hope I am in a nice spot to see Mercury, I only saw it very few times.

    Clocked my camera's counter this morning. Was a worthy effort. Crud on the sensor unfortunately, so Orms will be visited soon.
