Despite cirrus clouds and haze, we were able to take some pictures of the eclipsed Moon and realize this composite showing the dimension of the Earth's shadow cone. It was easier with a hoop, But the Moon was too high and my girlfriend is too small. We were really really lucky: less than an hour after the end, it started raining for good! :o)
