Total eclipse of supermoon from the Nymphs Hill

Total eclipse of supermoon from the Nymphs Hill

After casting its light on the Acropolis, the supermoon played with the clouds and gradually disappeared from the sky when the Earth moved between the moon and the sun.

The eclipse that in some stages despite the cloudy sky was also visible in Athens started a few minutes after 04:00 on Monday and the full eclipse took place one hour later.

It was the first total eclipse of the supermoon since 1982 and the phaenomenon will happen again in 2033.

A large number of citizens went to Athens Observatory at the Nymphs Hill in Athens to observe the total eclipse through the Doridis telescope, a telescope constructed in 1902 and is placed in a special dome on Pnyka Hill.
