Super Blood Moon Eclipse

Recommended Posts

My son and I were out last night to watch the eclipse. Fortunately just before 8:00 the clouds started to break. But they came back in full force just before the mid-point of the eclipse. 

Here's a link to all the pics we took, but here are a few individual ones.

The beginning...

A few minutes later...

I got worried the clouds were coming back in full force.

No clouds ... for a moment.

Starting to see the red...

Most of the way there...

As I played with the settings of my camera (and I really don't know what I'm doing) I was either getting the red AND overexposure of the white, OR just the white and no Red. I need to learn the settings better.

This was taken just a moment later after continuing to play with the settings...

Here's the grand finally before the clouds came back for good.

Cool beans. It was cloudy here last night, so we missed it.

Awesome pics.  It was pretty cool to watch - especially the way the stars behind the moon became visible when it went dark.
