Total lunar eclipse
This page shows you a review image of total lunar eclipse observed at Japan on Jan 31, 2018.
This set of images shows you the change of blood moon during about 80 minutes in winter midnight skies,
Although the weather was just before broken, fortunately I could observe almost all progress of the rare event including the partial eclipse.
