Great Lunar Partial Eclipse
The weather was kind and great views of the partial eclipse of the Moon were seen - marking the 50th anniversary to the day for the Apollo 11 launch and that iconic countdown of Jack King - the NASA Public Relations Officer. On my photo, I’ve placed a blue dot where the Apollo 11 landing site was on the Sea of Tranquility.
As the Moon came into view from my lounge window, I took another image and you can see how the shadow has altered position and the red colouring has gone.
The shadow of the Earth on the Moon is one of the proofs that the Earth is round and not flat!
