A partial lunar eclipse was visible over Mumbai on 7th of August, 2017 which I managed to catch on my camera. Though the quality was not that great, I still enjoyed my first time going live on my YouTube Channel, Indianomics.
I read in the news that the full moon will move into Earth’s shadow, which makes for a spectacle in the sky – which we call as Lunar Eclipse. These happen often (by celestial standards), however probably is one of most visible. In the video below, I have tied to shoot in negative so that the partial eclipse can been see, given the amount of clouds and dust in the sky surrounding Mumbai.

What is a Lunar Eclipse?
An extract from Wikipedia: A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind the Earth into its umbra (shadow). This can occur only when the sun, Earth, and moon are aligned (in “syzygy”) exactly, or very closely so, with the Earth in the middle. Hence, a lunar eclipse can occur only the night of a full moon. The type and length of an eclipse depend upon the Moon’s location relative to its orbital nodes.
Tools used to shoot eclipse?
I used my iPhone to shoot the eclipse, live using the YouTube app. So far, I have not fully ventured into shooting serious videos and hence, have not invested in a great camera myself yet. I hope in future, and with money I get from advertisements (if at all I make that much), I will surely upgrade to a full fledged camera.
I used my recently acquired Jio connection to stream live, which cost me about 450MB of my daily limits. Of course, I was live streaming via YouTube. Jio of late has really proved all its hype, especially after the free period ended. I am extremely happy with Jio so far, and I hope to get similar performance in future as well.
