I had some time to start with an animation of the Lunar Eclipse.
This is from the beginning of the total to the end as the sun began to rise. From the part before I have no continuous frames. Maybe I can make something out of it later.
It's nice to see the stars and the shadow move 🙂
The seeing was so good that every frame was sharp, I never had that before. And I was surprised how many stars I could see during the total phase, this wasn't the case last year.
The Meteoroid Impact is there too, about 2 seconds after the start, just for one frame around 8 o'clock position.
I also have a Hires version on YouTube.
