Total lunar eclipse - 31.1.2018 at 16.36 - 31.1.2018 at 17.19 Varkaus Observation number 69889

Visibility IV / V

Denis Sokol, Warkauden Kassiopeia

Attached is a sequence of Moonrise during partial phase of lunar eclipse.

The sequence is taken at 16:36:58 - 17:19:52 local time.

Location: Varkaus, in front of Stora Enso factory.

The size and location of the moon is not faked. This is true trajectory and size as seen by 60mm lens. These are 15 frames with interval ~3 minutes between shots.

On the last 5 frames the moon was, unfortunately, overexposed, but since I didn't want to fake anything, I left it as is.

The temperature -12C. Smoke is coming from hot waters of a factory.

I also attach few shots of the moon taken with 500mm lens handheld with old iconic Nikon D90 camera.
