No sleep from Saturday night until Monday night. Was it worth it?
This was one of the darkest eclipses I've seen. For me, it rated as a 2 on Danjon Scale. Must've been a lot of clouds or dust in the Earth's atmosphere which prevented light reaching the moon.
I watched the eclipse through a 10 inch Dobsonian. The view was spectacular and the colours sublime.
The next total lunar eclipse for the UK will be in July 2018.
