Lunar Eclipse from the Roof of Kent Vale 2

On October 8, 2014, we had the second of a group of 4 lunar eclipses. This particular eclipse was very beautiful as it rose out of the haze of Singapore, with the moon in the full shadow (umbra) of the Earth. We offered a pizza party from the roof garden, 24 stories above Singapore, to a group of about 40 students and a few faculty. While many of the students had to leave before the moon rose above the haze, those that remained were rewarded with a spectacular cosmic sight! ¬†Below are a few pictures of the event taken from our roof pizza eclipse party! ¬†These pictures were taken with the Yale-NUS 6″ Nexstar telescope and a Canon DSLR camera, with help from Kimberly!
