Last night was a very special night, a super-blood-moon lunar eclipse was visible for the first time since 1982. 🙂
This is where the Earth is between the Sun and the moon.
I stayed up to watch this amazing sight and snapped a few photo’s of the moon gradually going through the eclipse (you will have to excuse the pics as I have only a 55-250 telephoto lens).
Just over halfway and it started to give off that reddish-pinky glow. It really was an awesome spectacle.
Just before totality (full eclipse) at around 03:10 in the morning.
The next blood-supermoon-eclipse isn’t until 2033, I would really like to be around to see that one, hopefully with a better lens. 🙂
If you’re interested here are some other photo’s from the NASA website: Here
I hope if you watched the eclipse you enjoyed it, what did you think and did you get some really good photos? 🙂
