Those 7 pictures are composed in order to show the dimension of the Earth's shadow cone (which is three times the Moon diameter). One can see that the Moon hasn't plunged deeply in this cone.
With the weather we had, I'm happy to be able to realize this composite, which isn't really symetric, but nether mind!
With my friend Didier, we were able to show is near real time on CieldesHommes.com with picture better than those from webcams.
