Well for once a celestial event took place at sociable hours! Every July and August here on Paros we are treated to a fine meteor shower—shooting stars. But the best time for viewing is in the early morning before dawn—not my time of day.

But last night the Eclipse of the Moon started here at 9:50 P.M. and reached 100% about 10:20 P.M. There were a few wispy clouds but all in all a good show.

About 75% into eclipse
Just under 100%
100% Zoom in to see lunar landscape
About 50% out of eclipse
