more moon pictures

I took some more pictures of the moon tonight. It was a lot brighter than the other day and also a bit cloudy, so I had to catch it in between clouds. Click on the picture for a few more.

There is a total lunar eclipse coming up this weekend. It will be visible from almost everywhere on earth, except far eastern Asia and Australia. In North America the moon will be partially eclipsed at moonrise (which is also sunset that day) on Saturday November 8, with the greatest eclipse occurring at 7:30 PM Central time. I will try to take pictures, of course.
