During a quiet moment after the night of the Lunar Eclipse. Northshore, Auckland, New Zealand.
There was a Lunar Eclipse on the night of the 31st Jan/1st Feb, which was also the second Supermoon of 2018 and a Blue moon (second full moon in a month).
With a lot of clouds from approaching cyclone and huge storm, unfortunately, the eclipse was not observable from anywhere close to where I was in the South Island. The surrounding became complete dark while no moonlights or starlights came through the rain clouds during the totality that lasted for few hours.
It was a pity but I did enjoy the large bright moon the day before and after the Full moon. Also, there is another Lunar Eclipse in June coming up, something to look forward to.
