    TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE | FEB 20th, 2008
    Watching the sky wia a telescope, it's a very special event that puts you in another perspective and let you drive your life into another dimention.
    You feel how small and insignifiacant one is vs. the Universe. I took some 200+ pictures of this special event that developed in 2 phases : 1. The first part was partially obstructed by clouds in South Florida weather + 2. The second part was crystal clear, free of clouds.
    The first phase was colored in red, because of the light reflection on the Earth atmosphere.
    The second phase was bright white, with gray shadows and clear images. Other celestial object accompanied the moon on this extraordinary and spectacular voyage: * - Saturn (planet) * - Regulus (bright multiple star) * - Algieba (multiple star, visible on the far, northern side), in Leo Constellation * - Eta Leonis ( multiple star, visible on the far, northern side, in Leo Constellation
    This was a special event to watch and record. Looking at the stars, from our small blue and fragile planet, we can appreciate how marvelous the life is here and assimilate this place with a paradise.
    Another same event, total lunar eclipse, will not happened again until 2010.
    Please feel freen to cantact me for free pictures on the moon: *HEDI@ENGHELBERG.COM
