Sheila & Terry's New Zealand special holiday travel blog


We arrived back by a large bright full moon which was very impressive....but not as impressive as what followed. After getting ready for bed we looked out of the front window of the van and to our amazement we were witnessing an eclipse of the moon right in the middle of our windscreen!

This very bright full moon changed to an orange/brown colour and the edges became so clear it looked like a ball you could pluck out of the sky. Looking at it just as the earths shadow covered the moon there was light spreading from the top which made the contours of the moon(mountains etc) stand out particularly well looking through the binoculars. What amazing sight.
