Total lunar eclipse - 28.9.2015 at 06.23 Kokkola Observation number 43059

Visibility Unclassified

The alarm clock rings at 4.50, the sky completely in the cloud. I decided to take a nap and check back later. Unfortunately, the course of time in the dream world is very different from awake. I woke up and a peek out the window proved my fear: the eastern sky was clear! Quick dress and cycling hanging around the 600mm neck, heavy stand in one hand ... When I got to the observation site, I got a refreshing and cool downpour to awaken my return to reality. Twice, I already had time to pack my belongings and decide to return home until a marvelous 15-second "observation window" tore at just the moon. I was already upset about the late hour but I was happy about this rip too.

Hienot kuvat oot saanu otettua! Itse olin klo.03 jälkeen ylhäällä ja kelit vaihtuivat täällä "reunakaupungilla" tiuhaan tahtiin. Neljän jälkeen näkyi osittainen varjo. Klo.05:41 sain kuin sainkin täydellisen pimennyksen kuvattua pilviharson läpi ja tihkusateessa, vaikka ehdin jo ajatella vieväni kamppeet sisälle.
