Spectacular lunar eclipse

Published by:


The lunar eclipse was quite nice and certainly worthwhile to watch. My tripod was not the best and was one reason why the pictures were not absolutely picture sharp. Also I have no remote or cable release.

Tonight is the 31st August 2007 traditional beginning of spring celebrations with Rune and his mate Alex. We have a couple of hours of storm videos and then from there we hear a couple of sound tracks that give a mood for storms and then we had up to the local lookout to finish the proceedings at midnight - obviously 1st September - beginning of spring. Looking forward to it but I am a little sick so I am not sure how long I will stay.


Weak thunderstorms along the coast yesterday

Hi Jimmy,

Had some weak thunderstorms along the coast yesterday and some isolated showers about. First time in months there have been offshore CBs. We had a MASSIVE 1mm of rain Monday night, and for whatever reason our rainwater tank water now stinks. Will have to add a little chlorine to fix that. Just another hassle of virtually no rain for 6-7 weeks is that the water from the down pipes into the tanks becomes stagnant.
