When a full moon happens at the time when the Moon is on perigee on is orbit around Earth i.e. its closest point, the Moon appears 15% larger than at the farest point we call it Supermoon. Not so often we have a lunar eclipse occurring then. So it was early in the morning at 04:11 local time when totallity began this morning. Wonderful calm weather made observation to be a joy. So I was able to take a lot of images of this event and some of them I present on this site HERE. Short time before the totallity phase ended, strong fog came in from the waters of the Baltic Sea which made the moon disappearing behind clouds.
