Third Lunar Eclipse in a row for me!

Despite the bad weather, the cloudy skies, and even the prediction of snow, the skies barely cleared enough at totality to allow me to capture my third total lunar eclipse in a row!

Focusing was almost impossible due to the fact I didn't get up until the moon was nearly 85% eclipsed. And then the foggy clouds made even finding it very difficult.

But just about 4 minutes before totality the sky around the moon cleared up!
Here are the results, un-photoshopped.

Now the moon was getting low, into the tall pine trees here...

Well, it was awesome to see this eclipse and
to hear quail calling in the distance
in the total darkness!

Now we wait for another...

  1. Wow! It looks like an egg. Got to be some kind of illustration in that.
