Lunar eclipse

Moon and clouds

To me it’s always a nice thought. A little over 8 minutes before I took this picture the light you see left the Sun. About a second before I took the picture (that is almost a second after I pressed the button with the 2 sec delay timer switched on) the light was reflected by the Moon. Well, part of it. The Earth blocked part of the light, placing the moon partly in its shade. And part of the light leaving the moon, never made it to my sensor, as a cloud blocked its way in the last few meters…
