Lunar Eclipse – Cape Town Sept 2015

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.

Change

Ever noticed how the Moon always appears a lot larger as it emerges above the horizon, it appears to become smaller as moves further above the horizon. This month’s supermoon is being described as the biggest, closest and brightest moon of this year, add to that the fact that there will be a total lunar eclipse tomorrow morning, resulting in a red moon, making it even more significant. Change is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of Moonrise this evening, from Signal Hill above Cape Town, are my response to the prompt.
