Partial Lunar Eclipse (7 September 2006)


On September 7, 2006, the moon would rise partially eclipsed. I was in The Hague, and observed the event from a dune near Scheveningen. It was rainy and clouded, but just after greatest eclipse the sky cleared, and I was able to take some pictures.

The picture above was published in the Dutch astronomy magazine Zenit (November 2006, page 541)
