Lunar Eclipse. July 27, 2018.

The longest Lunar eclipse of the century took place on July 27, 2018. It was difficult to observe because it was a dark eclipse. Combined with haze, clouds, and a relative bright nordic sky made it somewhat challenging to observe it. The following images were taken from the mountain Dalsnibba 1476 meter above the sea level located in Stranda, Norway.
