Lunar eclipse

Hi All

Looking forward to the total lunar eclipse on 31-Jan. Does anyone have any plans/meet-ups for the event?

Info about timings across Oz on this page - http://www.lunareclipse2018.org/ecli...tralia-oceana/

See the long established eclipse thread. http://www.iceinspace.com.au/forum/s...d.php?t=164057

In short, unlikely as its visible anywhere from 50% of the planet, clouds permitting.

Besides, it appears you're 11,000 miles away, give or take a few.

Hopefully this cooler change we are expecting drags its heels and arrives after about 2 tomorrow morning. Supposed to be mostly clear here until between 9 and midnight when they expect it to pass through.

I’ll be observing the eclipse from my basement - the seeing should be excellent !

- with a phone playing the NASA clip, scope 50m away at the other end, focussed on the phone.

Yeah, actually Marc I think I've seen it posted here before, LOL.
If only it'd work huh?
As a sidenote, I'm planning on putting up my drone to try and get above the clouds.
Next best thing I reckon, since I won't get a viewing from ground level.

Success!!

The clouds broke up enough to shoot through the gaps.

Captured 125GB data.

It was a truly magnificent sight (sorry bout that).

Now the hard part...

Will post a result soon
