Total Lunar Eclipse
We were fortunate to see the total lunar eclipse in Singapore. Instead of the normal bright white full Moon (see the inset), the Moon looked like a crescent Moon. On closer inspection, its red "body" was apparent and progressed to an almost total eclipse before passing out of the Earth's shadow to become a regular full Moon. The lights in the lower left are that of an airplane that just happened to be flying by the Moon during the 1.6s exposure. Simply Spectacular!!

The Moon
Canon 500D prime focus on C9.25. 1/25 sec ISO100. From Punggai.

The Moon is always a good starting target for photography. Good detail can be obtained with any telescope and very fast shutter speeds.

Moon Halo
Canon 500D prime focus on C9.25. 1/25 sec ISO100. From Punggai.
by KJB.

This optical phenomenon is due to ice crystals in the clouds. If you zoom in, you can actually see the colours of the rainbow in the halo!
