Lunar Eclipse 21 January 2019
Moffat weather can be difficult for catching major astronomical events, but for once, clear skies greeted the lunar eclipse.
The usual January Wolf moon was also a Super Moon, 30% brighter, and the diffracted red light from the earth's atmosphere during totality made it a Blood moon. Three for the price of one!
Well worth getting out of your bed for, but if you didn't, click on the video adjacent and it will give you some idea of what you missed.
The second video has 14 meteors passing overhead in a 30 minute time lapse.
