Lunar Eclipse, September 27, 2015. It was with much anticipation that we looked forward to the lunar eclipse on this date. It was going to take place at a convenient time before midnight, and the Moon would be in a fine location in the sky for viewing. An eclipse like this can be accurately predicted many years in advance, but the one factor that is left up to chance is cloud cover. After enjoying a week of sunny skies here, the clouds moved in just hours before the eclipse started! Nonetheless, I remained hopeful during the 72 minutes of totality, and I was rewarded with a few minutes of viewing and photography of the lunar eclipse as a clear patch slowly passed by.
