Lunar eclipse 3rd sept 2016

TRACC works in the middle of the Celebes sea on a tiny desert island.  Perfect for coral reef conservation but also fantastic to see the beauty of the Universe.  We normally look at macrolife, from nudibranchs to octopus but when the Moon shows how amazing the night sky can be, it is hard to ignore the largest visible thing in the night sky.

The shadow of the earth on the moon is clearly visible.

With time and effort, Gon our dive instructor managed to get this great photo.  Thanks

Visits to TRACC can't guarantee that the Moon will make the trek across the sky again.  The stars are always great, sunsets fantastic and the undersea life always amazing.
