Partial Lunar Eclipse - 31st December 2009

This wasn't a very impressive eclipse with just 8% of the moon covered by the umbra of the Earth's shadow.

The weather didn't cooperate, with cloud during the ecplise then clearing up after it was all over...

A very short exposure just shows the moon through thin cloud.

A much longer exposure shows the cloud corona in a thinner section of cloud.

This was a lot more more impressive than the partial eclipse!
