Blood moon November 2021 notes

I caught some glimpses of the eclipse last night, between cloud. Just after 10 pm, it looked just like this, in binoculars. My couple of photos were garbage. so, just to remember this:

The longest partial lunar eclipse visible in New Zealand in more than 800 years … has not been seen in our skies since Kupe landed in Aotearoa 800 years ago. … While lunar eclipses happen every couple of years, the next one as long as tonight’s will not occur for another 648 years’ … in 2669
