I got up at 4am, but had to go outside because a huge tree was blocking the view from my window. It was super cold outside and the moon was smaller than I thought....
It also completely ruined my sleep pattern, so I don't think I will get up at a time like that again just to look at the moon.

Was fine. I find it interesting that you can see the shadow on the moon.

Nice pic! Wish I could have seen it. It was probably worth getting up in your case to see it, the next one won't be for many years.

I just about got to see the 95% partial eclipse of the sun some months back, there was some cloud, but you could still see the sun. It was weird how it suddenly got cold and how eerily quiet it became.

Don't forget the blood moon and the total lunar eclipse as well as that the Mars will be very bright tomorrow. A combination like that you will only see once in 105000 years.

To find the Mars you can use a free app like "sky map" or "sky few".

Nice pics, too cloudy here so we depend on photos from other places to enjoy it.
