5.0/5 The longest Blood Moon of this century, shared with hundreds of people!
Experience Date: Jul 27, 2018
Space Experience Points : 15
Our head teacher send an E-Mail to every Student, inviting us to meet together on the roof to watch the longest eclipse of this century!
I replied to his E-Mail, asking if it would be possible to set up my Celestron Nexstar 11 GPS on the roof of the school. He accepted it and in the friday evening my telescope was all set up.
The moon was already partially eclipsed when he peeked out from the Horizon. At first he was so faint (dark), that I couldn't see him through my Telescope. But after the sun set, the moon started to unveil his beauty as a bright red sphere!
There were so many people that they had to queue up behind my telescope.
I nearly didn't get any pictures at all, which was totally worth it, because there's nothing better than sharing and giving the joy of looking up into the sky.
