The bleeding moon

Published on: 4/16/2014

I set the alarm for 1:30 yesterday to glimpse the eclipse of the full "blood" moon, Fortunately the snow clouds had passed and the night was actually quite clear for viewing.

I can't compete with professional photographers, but was fortunate to have several sharp photos turn out. I'm not going to share those with you. What you probably haven't seen yet is the dripping blood moon. The star to the lower right is Saturn.
