The partial lunar eclipse of 10 December 1973 - my oldest astronomy record!
On 11 May 1975 a partial solar eclipse was visible. This was the beginning of the end of Saros 118, in the sense that after 57 total, hybrid and annular eclipses it was the first partial one of the remaining 7 eclipses of this Saros. The last eclipse of Saros 118 will be on July 15, 2083.
Above some pictures I took during the total lunar eclipse of 18 November 1975.
