  1. Some photos of this morning's lunar eclipse:

    About 50 minutes before totality.

    Start of totality (c. 5.25 am).

    "Blood moon".

    Totality has ended.

    Partial eclipse continued through moonset/sunrise.

    All photos taken with my Nikon, and hand-held (tripods are for wusses).

      Two weeks on, and the three bodies are in pretty good alignment again, albeit in a different order. Only a partial eclipse (no corona), but still interesting to see a bite being taken out of the sun. Once again a clear sky, and the eclipse continued through sunset. Here are some pictures, all taken looking west across the Mississippi from just south of Prescott, WI. (GPS: <a href=https://www.google.com/maps/place/44%C2%B044%2734.4%22N+92%C2%B047%2729.8%22W/@44.7428884,-92.7916111,15z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x0>44.7429° -92.7916°</a>)

      OK, so using an improvised dark filter may not have been the greatest idea.

      The top of the sun is missing!

      The round ball is one of those things they put on high cables crossing the river to make them more visible.

      Or a UFO, since it's a bit too large to be Mercury.

      They're still not visible enough to keep crop-dusting pilots from hitting the wires.

      Completely clouded out again. Today? Beautiful, not a cloud in the sky.
