Partial lunar eclipse

Is anyone planning to observe the partial lunar eclipse on 7th August? The circumstances and a map of its visibility are here: https://in-the-sky.org/news.php?id=20170807_09_100

I'm guessing the BAA doesn't have many members who'll be able to see it, since it's not visible from Europe or America. But if any Australians are reading this, please do post pictures to your Members Pages' so that we Europeans can see!

Here in Sweden, the eclipse ends with the Moon four degrees up, so I was wondering if I could find a flat enough horizon to catch a picture, but my plans were foiled by a trip to the UK that week!
