Cool, CC!

What's the observer's location?

PS: Long time ago my wife and myself stood a chance of visiting the Physics Dept. of Bariloche. To bad we didn't seize it...Even worse, we knew about the beauty of Bariloche even then.

Were you wondering why the moon's upside down Fridger? ;-)

-- That's because it's my location.
(Photo's taken by me then GIMP'd to create the GIF.)

Actually, I was not. I first enjoyed the amazing respective phenomenology of the Moon many years ago during a night flight from Dakar (West Africa) to Bahia (Brasil), watching the Moon turn by ~90 degs, then floating on the sea like a boat (gondola)...Easy to extrapolate to NZ ;-)

Oh... That's great. I actually figured you were using Celestia, asking myself why you had not included finer time steps ;-)

Cheers,
Fridger

Good to know that my real-life photography was good enough to make you think it was "Celestia" quality. :mrgreen:

In fact, during the early phases, I mostly just grabbed what shots I could (during add-breaks while watching TV), and closer to totality I set the camera to automatically capture set's of 10-15 shots at intervals of 1-2 mins.
If I had a tracking telescope mount (and had planned from the outset to produce an animation), I would have used this approach for the entire event, but without such special equipment, regular re-aimimg of the camera and the alignment of many 100's of layers in GIMP to produce a GIF would have been laborious. (Even with the limited few which I used, you'll notice the alignment is not perfect between frames). In any case, the camera battery was running low as well.
So, for obvious reasons, the sequence of time is not linear in the animation.
