This page shows you a review image of total lunar eclipse observed at Japan on Oct 8, 2014. The event could be observed in evening at Japan, many people enjoyed totally eclipsed Moon for about an hour in east skies. Although the Moon was often covered with clouds, I could observe the event about 70% of all the progress.
I've provided several other impressive images of this splendid sky event on and after next page. Please check those without forgetting.
