Great shot! We missed our chance to see it due to clouds. It was visible in the northern hemisphere first and now is visible from the southern hemisphere.

Taken with a bit of light still left with the setting sun. Timed exposure about 5 secs f5.6. Taken off the back patio Lorraine.My picture shows a bit of light still coming from the bottom, but some monitors I have seen it on have it totally black. Not sure why. Not sure if visible in N.Hem.

great shot John, Where did you take this shot, down at the beach? or at your place, I went out the other night but was looking in the wrong place.
