Congratulation for this beautifull report of this eclipse.

Happy new Year

Dear group,

We were very fortunate to have relatively very good conditions for this evening's partial lunar eclipse and which was a great way to end the year, the decade as well as IYA 2009.

Although the depth was only 8%, the moon's partial entry into the umbral shadow was quite obvious both naked eye as well as through the telescope at high power. For a time series with exposures spaced 30 minutes apart and which documents the moon's entry into the penumbra and umbra as well as its consequent exit, please see .

Best wishes to everyone for the New Year filled with health and prosperity!
