Here in Lund in southern Sweden, the Moon rose totally eclipsed last Saturday. Because of clouds close to the horizon, I couldn’t see the Moon while in totality. However, the clouds soon cleared and the Moon became visible. The partial phase was a nice sight in 15×70 binoculars, parts of the umbra had a slightly red tinge.
I observed together with my 8-year old son – it was his first eclipse – and we also met another stargazer with whom we shared the experience. It turned out she was an experienced bird-watcher (285 species observed from Sweden) who also was interested in observing the night sky.
