Total lunar eclipse today
Today we've been on the roof. We watched the lunar eclipse. It was beautiful.
An astronomical event of the special kind can be seen on Friday: if the weather holds, the total lunar eclipse can be observed in all parts of the GDR.
I'm not sure if my interest in Astronomy started at this night or if I was into it already. But this was really something and I still remember being on the roof with my dad.
Accessing the roof tops of Berlin is unfortunately not as easy as it used to be anymore. When I was a kid the attics were largely unused and accessible to all tenants. Today most roof spaces have been remodeled into appartments and exits to the roofs are locked up tightly.
