An Eclipse To Come

This image arrived in the LPOD mailbox yesterday with no information attached other than the sender's name. The date of June 6 on the image suprised me for the eclipse occured June 4th. Matt's email address ends with .au so I assume he lives in Australia, but the eclipse day was still the 4th there. So it is a typo, but the 9 images are a wonderful documentation of the progress of the Moon through the edge of Earth's shadow.
PS - I got Matt's general address from a posting he made that showed up in a Google search.
Meade LX90 8" and Nikon D3100 camera – exp 1/250secs ISO 200.
Matt's website, maybe
