Lunar Eclipse - August 28, 2007 (JRS)

Another once-in-a-lifetime occasion happened tonight: a total lunar eclipse as viewed from the South Pole.  We knew it was coming since Robert had mentioned it during his Astronomy class at the beginning of winter.  He had also sent out a couple of emails in the days approaching, explaining what was going to take place and giving the time-line.  For more pictures see the gallery: Lunar Eclipse.

Emrys and I had been talking about it and decided to take pictures from ARO, with one camera that we had borrowed being stationary, while our two cameras we would use to get close-ups of the moon.  The only thing we needed now was for the weather to stay clear.  Luckily for us, it did, and about 800 pictures later (between the two of us), the eclipse had passed.  Here’s some of my pictures of the eclipse:

I want to put together a montage of the pictures, but just haven’t gotten around to it.  But, that night, Robert Schwarz had already put together this one (which made it on spaceweather.com for a couple of days):

A couple of days later, he sent out this one:

Over the next couple of weeks, Emrys put together this one (which I really like):
