Lunar Eclipse



The first lunar eclipse of 2014 happened over Monday night into Tuesday morning. The total phase of the eclipse started at 12:08am PST. I went out into my backyard with my camera at about 11pm and started to take some photos. Disappointingly, clouds moved in right about 11:45 and I was only able to see slight glimpses of the total phase and missed all of the blood red hue. But I was able to make this mini-collage of what I was able to capture before the cloud cover moved in.

  3. The same thing happened to me. I saw much of the eclipse, but clouds covered the red moon. I do love your collage, though.

  7. You got some of it though, hooray! I was hoping to see some eclipse pictures from the west coast. (I couldn't stay up that late here in Florida -- if we had been 'home' in Oregon, I might have made it.)
