Eclipse was overcast - 28.9.2015 at 03.45 - 28.9.2015 at 05.55 Ilmajoki Observation number 43060

Visibility Unclassified

Marko Myllyniemi, Lakeuden Ursa

I woke up before the bell, or about a quarter to four, to check the cloud cover situation and I had to guess: The moonlight appears behind the clouds, so I don't hope for any shooting chores. Plus, after a while, a rather short downpour drummed into the ceiling, just like announcing that you shouldn’t bother.

After a short sleep, a new check at 5 o'clock, and the situation had not changed for anything but neither at 6 o'clock as I knew when I last checked the situation. The new definition of "super moon eclipse" could be: the eclipse takes place behind a cloud curtain ...

Even more annoying is the fact that when I write this observation report at about 10 o'clock in the morning, it shines from an almost cloudless sky ...
