I decided to stay up late and watch the lunar eclipse. Not long ago we had a partial eclipse that I documented, but I believe this is my first total eclipse. Huh, I thought I had posted about it, but I guess I wasn’t thrilled with the results, being a partial and all. I do have a post about the last solar eclipse here.
Unfortunately, I decided to wait until right when it started to head outside, so I didn’t get a good full before shot. But I am pretty thrilled with what I did capture.
About this point I decided it was time to adjust the setting on the camera to start capturing the blood moon.
As you can see that dramatically changed what we were looking at.
And we have the full eclipse. The blood moon.
And here it is with Spica (bright star to the right) and Mars (top right).
I was hoping to stay up late enough to watch the whole thing uncover again, but I was tired so I called it a night.
I put together this little compilation that shows the first half of the event. Really fun.
From what I hear this is the 1st of 4 total eclipses we will get to enjoy over the next 2 years. That is pretty exciting! Of course I am going to go out and see it.
