A 'closer' perspective of the partial lunar eclipse from my camera. It's not much, but it's the best I could get. I'm still quite new in planetary or lunar imaging, and also no proper gears for it. Still, I'm taking this chance to dedicate this photo to the historic launch of Apollo 11 mission. 50 years ago yesterday (July 20, 1969), the world watched as astronauts set foot on the lunar surface for the first time. Can you imagine, one small step leads up to giant leaps of today and what comes next. Here's to 50th anniversary of the Moon landing.
