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 http://www.perseus.gr/Astro-Eclipses-2009-12-31b.htm .

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

Anthony.
