  1. Luna as she slipped through the Earth's ephemeral penumbra (partial shadow), darkening slightly. The area near the deeper part of the Earth's shadow (umbra) can be seen on the northern limb. There was a very thin veil of cloud so the shot wasn't as sharp as I would have liked. But I'm glad it wasn't clouded out completely. I used my Sony MiniDV to capture this at around 8 p.m. EST. Enjoy, Reggie
  2. Who is planning to observe or image during the penumbral eclipse this weekend? https://britastro.org/node/9088 James
  3. I tried to see the penumbral eclipse this morning, but the moon was too low on the horizon at the time. I did see our beautiful, large, looming satellite setting in the West and a gorgeous sunrise in the East at one of my favorite observing spots, so I can't complain There was a magical mist on the pond, too! Did anyone see the eclipse? Cheers, Reggie
  4. Last summer I spent some time playing around building a simulator to show what eclipses/transits will look like, customisable to any observing location on Earth. I was trying to work out which way up an eclipse would appear from my location, and found it surprisingly tricky without looking at a planetarium program. In case anyone's interested, my simulation of this coming weekend's penumbral lunar eclipse is here: https://in-the-sky.org/news.php?id=20170211_10_100 My simulations of other eclipses are here: https://in-the-sky.org/newsindex.php?feed=eclipses (I've done every eclipse from 1980 to 2050) I was originally hoping to publish the simulator in time for last year's transit of Mercury, but it turned into a much more massive project than I was expecting... Still, if you want to relive transits of yonder year (or get prepared for 2019), I've also built simulations of various transits of Mercury and Venus here: https://in-the-sky.org/search.php?s=transit&searchtype=News&startday=23&startmonth=1&startyear=2000 Not sure whether charts like this are actually useful, but I've not seen anything similar elsewhere. A good place to find out more about how to observe Saturday morning's penumbral eclipse is the BAA's handy guide here: https://britastro.org/node/9088
