Photographer's Note

[Photo scene info]
Well as most of you know, a lunar eclipse took place yesterday.
3-3-7? Yes, the third of March -> 03-03-'07.
Funny fact is, my housenumber is 337, that's why I wrote down the numbers in this way.
I've stabalized the camera on the edge of my window.

I've used spot metering to get proper details on the Moon, I hope I've succeeded in doing so!

This first of two total lunar eclipses in 2007 is unique in that it is atleast partly visible from every continent around the world.

Eclipse schedule for 2007 :

2007 Mar 19
: Partial Solar Eclipse (I)
2007 Aug 28: Total Lunar Eclipse (II)
2007 Sep 11: Partial Solar Eclipse (III)

(I) The first solar eclipse of 2007 occurs at the Moon's ascending node in Pisces and is visible from eastern Asia and parts of northern Alaska

(II) The second lunar eclipse of the year is another total eclipse. All of North America will witness some portion of the eclipse, but western observers are favored. The early penumbral or umbral phases will be in progress at moonset for observers in Maritime Canada. From the eastern USA, the Great Lakes region and Ontario, the Moon sets in total eclipse. Only observers to the west of the Rockies (including Alaska) will be treated to the entire event. All phases of the eclipse are also visible from islands of the Pacific Ocean, New Zealand and eastern Australia. Various stages of the eclipse are in progress at moonrise for eastern Asia. No eclipse is visible from Europe, Africa and western Asia.

(III) The last eclipse of 2007 is a partial solar eclipse at the Moon's descending node in southern Leo. Its visibility is confined to parts of South America, Antarctica and the South Atlantic. Greatest eclipse takes place at 12:31:21 UT when the eclipse magnitude will reach 0.7505.
