Fast-moving cloud meant it was pointless me setting up a telescope for this event!

This photo was taken only half an hour after the time of greatest eclipse, but, to the naked eye, you couldn't really tell there was anything different about the Moon. Here, though, there is evidence of a very slight darkening of the lunar disc around the 5 o'clock position.
