Total Lunar Eclipse

It was a beautiful day. From Kofu city, Mt. Fuji was clearly seen.

For dinner, Katya and I went to Tokube.

Extra wasabi, or horse radish, is something we do not miss.


I had a crab miso soup, too.

Yellowtails are good in winter.

We were expecting a lunar eclipse starting at 9:45 PM. It would be a total eclipse after 11 years.

I had a slight cold and left Katya take pictures. She was taking these photos continuously.



It was mysterious. The hide of the moon should continue for 50 min, but we came in to our apartment to avoid the coldness.

I had a hot bath. We are going to sleep.

    Congrats on seeing the lunar eclipse – but sorry to hear you had a cold. I was hoping to get some nice photos as well – but unfortunately it was cloudy all day and night. Glad Katya had fun taking photos. I’ll have to check them out on her photo blog.

    I am completely recovered from my cold.
    The photos in this blog were taken by Katya. She does not upload pictures that she is not satisfied with.
    She does not have a good lens for the astronomy, so she gave the pictures to me.

    Haha… it’s good to share. Seriously though, I’ve done ok with a 50-250mm lens – so it’s something to consider for Katya for Christmas! Anyhow, hope all is going well weather-wise in Kofu now. Must be getting colder… especially standing out in the cold night air looking at the moon.

    If it makes you feel better – it’s been a very cold start to summer here in Adelaide. Quite strange.

    Lens is a good idea. I was thinking about a good tripod, instead.
    Winter has come, but it is not freezing. Katya is very happy about winter in Kofu.
    Katya might invite her father in February, which would be fun.
