Fortunately, I ignored the various weather forecasts that were predicting cloudy skies, and an unlikely sighting for Cape Town. So when my alarm clock rang out at 3am, I was determined to at least go out and have a look even if only from my driveway, and that one look proved all the forecasters wrong :-). The Lunar Eclipse had already started, with no clouds anywhere in the immediate vicinity of the moon. I came across a few other determined souls that were not going to forego the privilege of witnessing this extraordinary occurrence, though not anywhere near how many I expected to see.
So, following on from yesterdays post on the Supermoon in Cape Town, https://4otomo.wordpress.com/2015/09/27/change/
here are some images of the Lunar Eclipse and resulting Red Moon over the Atlantic Seaboard in Cape Town earlier this morning.
