Yes, this tour was a dramatic action. At first we positioned ourself near the Bavarian Alps. Than a sudden rainfront forced the break off. At the end we drove nearly back and took position near Penzing in South Bavaria. When we saw the red moon disk after a long waiting time, it disappeared again after ten minutes because of a new cloud bank coming fast closer. Now the observation stopped  again. But between the gaps some funny moon eclipse unicates were orginated.

21.42: Attention: After a long waiting time the moon disk arosed out of the thick cloud layer. At the beginning the very dark moon was hard to see. The reason was, that the moon was passing the Earth shadow during this eclipse very centrical.
