Lighthouse sunset, rainy morning, lunar eclipse

Yesterday evening brought a stunning natural lightshow, just when I happened to drive back from Playa Blanca to our place, along the road that leads to the lighthouse. So I drove on... and stood and watched. 

The clouds weren't a good sign, though: the forecast is unstable. Today starts with rain, and some solitary strings of blue sky:

Hopefully the weather will clear: tonight is a lunar eclipse, visible from many places. Here's the website with info: 10. Februar / 11. Februar 2017 — Penumbral Lunar Eclipse

It isn't a full eclipse, though: "It is often difficult to tell the difference between a penumbral eclipse and a regular Full Moon. However, this eclipse is easier to spot than an average penumbral eclipse because the Moon travels through the darkest areas of Earth’s penumbra, only just missing the umbra, the darkest part of the shadow. However, this eclipse is less spectacular than a total lunar eclipse, also known as a Blood Moon."
Will try and catch it... have a lovely weekend with beautiful skies!
More skies: skywatch friday
