Date/Time of photo

I used Canon 60D and an old Russian Tair-3 4.5/300 lens stopped at f/8. Single 1/320 s frame at 160ISO from a photographic trippod.
The Moon close to the greatest eclipse on February 11, 2017 from our backyard in Exeter. Bright and high in the sky, it made a spectacular scene for the unaided eye and through my good old Russian Tair-3 4.5/300 lens. Known as the "Snow Moon" it brought snow in Exeter on the next morning. Fantastic!
