June 16, 2011 Total Lunar Eclipse Images and Videos
I was dumbstruck as I observed and at the same time took pictures of the red moon. I observed from 1:24 am until 5:30am (Philippine Standard Time). Despite migraine, lack of sleep, and high humidity, I was determined to watch all the stages of the eclipse until it disappears from my view. A report of my observation will be posted soon. Here are some of my images:
I’ve also collected images of the total lunar eclipse taken by fellow astronomy enthusiasts and amateur astronomers in the Philippines:

For those who missed the event, we still have another total lunar eclipse visible in the Philippines on Dec. 10, 2011! You still have a chance to witness this marvelous celestial sight!
For those who survived staying up late and witnessed the eclipse, congratulations to us and more observations to come!
To the moon!
