This Wednesday night I watched the lunar eclipse. As I write this, the moon is totally eclipsed and is a reddish orange colour. This is not the first time I have seen one, but this time I tried to take some photos. I guess I have to learn how to use my camera in this type of situation since the photos did not turn out too well! A tripod is essential.
I have also seen a solar eclipse. We used a welding helmet with shield to protect our eyes. It worked out well.
