    Lunar Eclipse happens 28 November 2012

    Visible in its entirety for all of Australia. Greatest eclipse is the middle of the night, of course! At least it will probably be warm.

    The key times for the lunar eclipse:

    Penumbral eclipse starts – 12:14:58 UT
    Greatest eclipse – 14:33:00 UT
    Penumbral eclipse ends - 16:51:02 UT

    This eclipse will have a magnitude of 0.9155. The start of the eclipse will not be visible to the naked eye. For about 30 minutes before and after the eclipse’s maximum, a light grey shading will be seen along the moon’s northern limb.

    NSW/Vic/Tas are +11 hours; Qld is +10; SA +10.30; Darwin +9.30; WA + 8

    Got the camera set up a couple km down the road and taking photos every 10 mins. Have to wake up at 1AM to adjust the exposure, then adjust again an hour later. Trouble is, it's starting to cloud over
    Fingers crossed it's just passing

    *sigh*

    Beautiful warm, clear night.

    But... I didn't see any darkening/eclipse of the moon through until 2AM. When I went down to adjust exposure around then there was dew on the lens also.

    Bugger! Will have to wait for another one.
