If You Want to Feel Small

… spend an evening looking at the stars. And the beautiful blood moon, too.

The lunar eclipse last night was beautiful. I know it was cloudy for most of the US, but the clouds went away just in time for us to enjoy it. Of course, I had my camera out.

This is a composite of 15 minute intervals… and the center photo is a composite of both sides of the moon, but both properly exposed. The blood moon side is so much darker than the regular moon side, so it would be impossible to expose properly for both sides at once, which is why it has to be a composite.

 

Since it was 3am here, I didn’t wake the kids up for it, but they were excited to see my photos today.

Who else enjoyed the eclipse?

  1. I love this! Thank you for sharing your beautiful work. It was cloudy here in Pittsburgh, so I didn’t get a chance to see it.
