THIS IS THE MARCH 4 LPOD BUT I AM RELEASING IT IN THE EVENING OF MARCH 3 SO IT CAN BEEN SEEN THE EVENING OF THE ECLIPSE. THANKS, ANTHONY!

Four minutes before the end of totality, Anthony captured the March 3 (March 4 in Greece) eclipsed Moon. Because totality was nearly ending, and the Moon passed through the northern half of the Earth’s umbra, the northern edge of the Moon was brighter than the southern part that passed closer to the center of the shadow. Anthony points out that the eclipse was so dark that he needed a 13 sec exposure at ISO 400 to capture lunar detail. It will be interesting to see how visual observers rank it on the Danjon eclipse brightness scale. Thanks for the very fresh astro-news, Anthony!
