September 2015 Lunar Eclipse

In the early hours this morning clear views and a perfect cloud-less sky over Rostock permitted excellent conditions for observing the lunar eclipse. The weather has been a little cold, but sunny and dry for days now – you could call it an Indian Summer I guess – with the leaves on the trees accumulating more and more yellows and reds each day.
