Lunar Eclipse

I raced home from work tonight with high hopes of clear skies. I’ve been out on the deck and was graced with one clear area in the clouds to snap a few shots just as I was setting up the tripod of the total lunar eclipse. The moon had barely risen above the hills and of course was only about 20% covered. I’m still tweaking the camera settings, too.

Totality begins at 7:23 PM and ends at 8:45 PM (that’d be when you see nothin’) and then the earth’s shadow moves away from the face of moon at 9:54 PM.

Catch it if you can. Spaceweather has the full story including photos from all over the world.

UPDATE: Photos posted as the evening progressed.

  1. I caught it peeking out from behind the obliging clouds around 9:30 p.m. when I was walking the dog.
