Here are pictures I took of the total eclipse of the Moon on October 27, 2004
with my 8-megapixel Nikon Coolpix 8700 digital camera mounted on a tripod. The
eclipse occurred at a fairly convenient and important (go
here to see why!!) time in the evening. The skies was partly cloudy during
the eclipse. The Moon was again not far from the constellation Aries and thus
not too far from the star Algol in the head of Medusa in the constellation Perseus.
There were some mysterious occurrences and a long standing curse ended during
the eclipse as well. I documented these and a few other Moon photos with my
other digital camera. Click on images to enlarge.
Early and middle partial phases of eclipse.
A few of these photos again reminded me of what Mars looked like through my telescope near my 2003 birthday when Mars was at its closest EVER to Earth (8/27/2003).
