Here are some photos I took of the lunar eclipse that took place last night. I mounted my digital camera on a tripod and used its zoom function to get some extreme closeups of the Moon. As a result, the resolution of these photos got compromised.
This first photo shows the Moon as the eclipse began. There was a beautiful halo around the Moon that I tried to capture but the halo was rather dim. I couldn’t believe how fast the eclipse was unfolding.
Less than 2 hours later, the eclipse was over. Even as I type this I’m still in awe over what I saw last night. That was without question the most spectacular eclipse I have ever seen with these two eyes.
