Total lunar eclipse

Well, we have just had the longest unbroken run of clear night skies that I can remember.  Tonight is the full Moon and every imager knows that a full Moon always means clear skies – but not tonight!  Why not?  Because in the early hours of Thursday morning we have a full lunar eclipse taking place (these occur during full-Moon phases) – so, the Patron Saint of astro-imagers has cloud cover on the cards.  Still, it will be worth checking outside every so often to see if anything is visible to you, and if it is, take a snap with the digital camera to record the event.
