Solar Eclipse of the Moon, Time-Lapse Video

Time-lapse video of Sunday's solar eclipse of the moon as seen from Key West

Saturday evening, Doug noted that a solar eclipse would be occurring in the 6 o’clock hour Sunday morning but that he’d still be in bed at that hour. I, alas, was not and figured I’d take a peek. It was extremely cloudy, though, so I figured I wouldn’t see anything and went back inside.

William Dail recorded this time-lapse video from Key West:

    Your title says a “of the Moon”, when it should just read “A Solar Eclipse”, not even “by the Moon” (any transit by Mercury or Venus is just that, a transit).

    Anyway, pretty cool. We could not see it here in the great midwest as the sun was not yet up.
