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!
