A reminder that tonight ( Wednesday, May 26), there will be an excellent total eclipse of the Moon, the first in Australia since 2018. Even though it will be cloudy in most of southern Australia, it is still worth going out to catch the eclipse between gaps in the cloud, or shining weirdly through the cloud layer. Times for the eclipse at cities around Australia are below. 

A guide I wrote for the October 2014 lunar eclipse to taking photos of the eclipse is here. And here is a more general (and more recent) link to lunar photography with mobile phones and adapters that is useful for mobile phone imaging of the eclipse.
