Total Eclipse of the Moon
1997 September 16

My friends of the ARECA (Association Reunionnaise pour l'Etude du Ciel Austral) and I had planned to send live images of the total lunar eclipse of 1997 September 16 on this page.
Transmission was to start September 16 around 17:00 UT and to end around 20:30 UT and images were to be updated every 2 to 5 minutes. Unfortunately due to the bad weather only a small number of images were sent. In spite of that more than 2500 visitors loaded this page.

Memories of a cloudy night.

WEATHER STILL CLOOUDY ...!!!! Only a few pictures taken along the eclipse.

Here are the little brothers of the first clouds....!!

Our setup.

Here are the last pictures.The eclipse is over and there are still some clouds (but less than during the eclipse ....).

Full Moon in penombra.

In the next few days here we'll put a little animation of nice clouds in front of the eclipsed Moon.
