    As I say, I got the eclipse date wrong. I’ll be out with my camera tonight. Hopefully something to share after that.

    Here are my modest shots. Blood moon just before totality, blood moon just after totality (not very different) and blood moon with Pollux and Castor, the two brightest stars of Gemini (and a few other stars).

    Great shots George. I have to do without own shots and just memory of a great sighting. Love your last shot with this tiny red moon in the corner in this great big black sky.

    There were some clouds early on, made more visible when the picture is enhanced.

    “Sods Law” kicked in big and hard – heavy fog rolled in dead on cue and precluded me from seeing anything of this event.  I feel gutted!

    The above said, here are some really fetching photos taken by BBC Weather Watcher folk.

    Enjoy!

    I often have wondered why it is when a celestial event occurs  “Sods Law” comes into play and messes up things big time?!!?

    Beautiful photos, George! I especially like the one with the misty clouds — very mysterious.

    And Laurence, thanks for links to other remarkable photos. We were completely overcast here, so it’s a treat to see what others witnessed elsewhere.

    As you can see, there was also a bit of haze here in Dallas (although nothing as dramatic as the mysterious one captured by George. Thanks, G, for the excellent shot). I hope this composite brings back some Red, Wolf-y memories.

    Also- Thanks Laurence fore the UK links. Echoing Keelin, it’s nice to see what other parts of the world looked upon.

    Thanks, George. I hope this gave a bit of flavor to the actual eclipse.

    A final say from me on this topic.

    Here is a truly marvell9us photo of the recent lunar eclipse of which I saw zilch owing to fog and cloud – as per damn usual!

    Dear Keelin, you suffered the same thing.  Dratt!

    Image comes from NASA’s APOD page today (26 January):-

    Paul Simons’ article on the supermoon goes on to discuss ‘a tiny flash of bright white light’, ‘a meteor slamming into the moon’s surface, but only appeared as a solitary pixel on recordings…..

    I would be interested to know if you can get these links – when I google it I just get the article again.
