The Moon, just before the eclipse starts
Paul's 30th and a Lunar Eclipse - 3rd March 2007
Paul M has a few beers up The Swan on the occasion of his 30th Birthday. It also happens to be the night of a total lunar eclipse, which, in a marked change from previous lunar eclipses (and the solar eclipse of 1999) can actually be seen.

With a few minutes to go, the Earth's shadow nears totality
A bit blurry (on account of a 2-sec exposure on a 600mm lens) - the Moon is almost fully eclipsed, and has a nice 'diamond ring' thing going on
Back in the pub, Bill and Carmen
