Solstice moon through clouds 12/20/10

I’m still hopeful that the clouds will clear long enough for me to get some decent eclipse photos tonight, but it’s not looking super promising. I’ve been waiting for this eclipse for a year and to have the weather not cooperate is very disappointing. It was the August 2007 eclipse photos that got my blog some notice and got me much more seriously into astronomy, and since then we’ve had clouds for both of the lunar eclipses (though last time I did get some images). Since this is the last one for a while I’m pretty disappointed. We’ll see, though – I’m definitely going to be up with my scopes, looking for holes in the clouds.

  1. I hope you’re able to get some photos of the eclipse tonight because our weather here in southern Ontario is not cooperating at all. I look forward to seeing your efforts. Love your blog!!

    • I’ve gotten one so far, but it’s not looking too promising. Clouds as far as the eye can see.
