Luna Eclipse Australia 2011

Although total Luna eclipses are rather common, it is a little hard
 to see two in one  year unless you are willing to do a little travel.
Fortunately I was in Germany earlier this year during such an event
 and even more  fortunate to see one last weekend in Australia.
This weekend's event was nearly marred by cloud cover,
 though It cleared enough to get the following shots.

These were taken over an hour as we progressed to full eclipse.
It then clouded over, though I was able to get some nice glimpses as
 the moon  moved back out of the shadow of the Earth.
The link to the earlier event in Germany is HERE.
