Lunar Eclipse

A total lunar eclipse happened today, April 4, 2015, shortly before sunrise. The total phase lasted less than five minutes, making it the shortest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century. Well, for me it was even shorter. Due to the high mountain ranges surrounding the Hacienda, I only got a glimpse of the beginning total phase before the moon disappeared behind a mountain.
