Next is an image of the lunar eclipse taken around 8:15 PM this evening September 27, 2015.
And a rather fuzzy image taken near full eclipse. I was holding camera rather than having it on a tripod. The result is less than perfect, but gives an idea of what a blood red moon looks like ...imperfect as is the image.
I did not anticipate how dark the moon would seem. I should have been a bit better prepared and studied the camera manual a bit more...as well as remembering a tripod.
Anyway, hope you find these somewhat interesting. Apparently we won't see anything like a full moon turning into a "blood moon" again for another 23 years or so.
