Monday 28th September 2015: 2.39am. Woke up about 2am after getting home from Seattle. Came downstairs and thought there is something wrong outside ... It seems unusually dark ... And lo and behold the moon is essentially missing, it's a lunar eclipse! I tried taking a photo with my phone camera set to a ten second exposure but I got nothing - it is indeed very dark. Good view of the milky way though that is fairly normal here anyway, nevertheless unusual to properly see a lunar eclipse, it's usually obscured by cloud. Last time I saw a proper one was while studying in Hull which is probably sixteen years ago now.
