Photographing through the clouds – Cloud Totality of the 4th April 2015 Lunar Eclipse

The April 4th 2015 Total Lunar Eclipse from Perth Western Australia was a largely cloudy experience but we persevered and were amazed what the camera pulled out from behind the clouds!

Visually the moon was barely if at all visible throughout totality with cloud obscuring the dimly lit Moon. Luckily the camera was more successful! The above photographs show the period of totality quite nicely, you could say “with some atmosphere”(!!) considering the weather conditions during the Total Lunar Eclipse.
