Lunar Eclipse



We had some late afternoon cloud roll in so I was uncertain how well we'd be able to see tonight's lunar eclipse. Fortunately, conditions weren't as bad as I thought they would be. I had a pretty good view of the eclipse from my livingroom window so it was just a matter of stepping out onto my front porch. This shot here is one of the better ones of the lot. It was taken at 9:34pm.

Stunning photo! I wish my camera can capture great photos of the night sky like that.

Thanks Iqaluit. The shot turned out better than expected though I think that had more to do with luck than skill on my part.

Ok this is freaky! I took almost the exact same picture at about the exact same time! And I know this because I remember looking at the clock before I went to get Cole out of bed to see the eclipse. Weird!!!
