Megalunar Eclipse

Thanks to Cecilia last night for letting us know there was a lunar eclipse in Buenos Aires. We got up at 3:30am when the Earth’s shadow started appearing on one side of the incredibly bright moon. I stayed up taking some pictures for the next 90mins, hoping that the eclipse would be complete before the Moon went too far down behind our neighbour’s bathroom. Well, it did require a stepladder, but I managed to just about get the whole thing. Fascinating.
