This eclipse was partly visible in Holland. Like the previous one on 15-06-2011, the moon rised during the eclipse although this time, after totality. The eclipsed part of the moon was slightly visible from 20 minutes after moonrise until about 10 minutes before 4th contact. Some of the pictures below are combinations of 3 or 4 pictures with different exposure times to show bnoth the uneclipsed and eclipsed part of the moon.
