It’s lunar eclipse time! Last time, I was pleased to capture some solar eclipse (here) so here now is the other side. This special lunar eclipse had what was touted as a “blood moon” effect where according to la times, “The dark red hue will come from the light of sunsets and sunrises over the rest of the Earth.” (article). Have to admit the copper red was a little hyped up and definitely more muted in person. Could definitely tell it was red-ish but wasn’t quite blood red.

Photos were not edited in anyway so that you could see pretty much what I saw. Did bump up the exposure a little. You even get a little bit of mars in the 1st photo in the upper right corner if you click on it.

All in all pretty neat.

  1. I expected it to be more blood red too, but I also didn’t know what I was trying to look for! So I only stayed up long enough to see what you saw in the first photo.
