Default Moon eclipse, eastern Australia, 4th June

G'day all

I didn't know that there was an partial eclipse of the moon tonight - just saw it while outside ...

1- Taken at 5:30pm shortly after moon-rise, this image happens to also show a bird flying across the face of the moon.

exif= X-s1 camera; 1/250s x f5,6; lens at 625mm; iso-640

2- Taken during the eclipse at 9:30pm, this image shows the partial eclipse in progress.

exif= X=s1 camera; 1/500s x f5,6; lens at 625mm; iso-800

Interesting ...

Regards, Phil

Didn't know about the partial eclipse and wouldn't have been able to see it anyway Phil too much cloud cover.

Lucky catch getting the bird in the shot!
