From Nigel Riley – “A breakdown of the Lunar eclipse last night as viewed from Glencairn Cape Town #beautiful experience #beautiful Cape Town.”
The following photo was taken by Martin de Kock (@Netjies), from just off Gordon Road in Bergbron, Gauteng. “I timed the moon in 10 minute intervals over 4 hours and chose what best represented the eclipse. The editing took me another 3 hours and only got to bed at 4:30 after sharing it immediately. I am very honoured that people like the image so much. I wanted to just give up and go sleep a few times in the edit. Haha. But I know hard work pays off, and this time it definitely did!” There are 20 photos in this final edit.
