On the night of the 8th of October the skies were clear on our hill. Our front veranda was a brilliant place to watch the lunar eclipse unfold.

We live outside a town of only 6,500 people, more than half an hour away from the bright lights of the Australian capital city, Canberra. So we had a clear view in the cold night air.
We watched the moon rise to the right and slowly turn red, then darken, before bursting open to a brilliant white. What a magnificent sight!
I took a series of photos over an hour and a half from 9.30 to 11.00 pm. ♦
