Lunar Eclipse



In case you missed it, here are some highlights of the total lunar eclipse tonight.

As the umbral shadow progressed and the night got darker, colder, it was more difficult to get good shots because a) I was shaking and b) the camera was so cold, the zoom froze up. At the full eclipse point, I managed to capture the colors changing from red to violet to blue and finally to a neutral. These photos are completely unadulterated. Next full eclipse is in 2010.

I LOVE stuff like eclipses and comets....so totally cool and weird. Last night's was gorgeously orangey here. So glad you got good pictures.
