Default Tomorrow's Eclipse

I've not seen any messages here about it so I thought I'd post something in case anyone interested has not heard (or forgotten) about this photo opertunity.
July 15th is due to have one of the deepest lunar eclipses a total of 101 minutes, finishing at 23.03 BST. With the recent volcanic eruption it's expected to be particularly red.
In the UK/north Europe it will be eclipsed at moonrise (totally eclipsed for most of the UK) and will be fairly low in the sky so you'll need a good view of the eastern horizon - Luckily I live near the east coast, so as long as the clouds keep away I should be OK!

thanks for the reminder, it was too cloudy over here to see anything.

yep, I was up at 320am being eaten by mozzies.. and stray dogs getting my shots in.
Only had access to a 18-200mm lens so not the sharpest and iso is crap. But the colours are something unique.
Hope everyone else got some shots in.
