Total eclipse of the moon by John W. Johnson in Nebraska, with the Virtual Telescope Project
Jean Napp wrote, “I was working through my photos of the eclipse and noticed the pale blue dot to the left of the moon: Uranus!” Cool! Thanks, Jean!
Janey Wing Kenyon of Story, Wyoming caught Uranus to the left of the moon, too. Beautiful shot!
Photo by Stephanie Longo, who wrote,”We didn’t think we’d be able to see the eclipse at all because the sky was covered with clouds when we went to bed. At 2 AM, however, the clouds had disappeared. Only a thin haze was left at the horizon.”
Here’s another beautiful composite from Ockert le Roux, who wrote: “On Wednesday evening most of south and east Australia was covered in cloud as a frontal system moved across. One of the few areas that were not clouded over, was Mount Gambier, second largest city in the state of South Australia. It is mid-spring in this part of the world, and the city is surrounded by golden fields of canola (rapeseed) in full bloom.”
