Earlier today there was a spectacular total eclipse of the moon that was easily visible here in West Palm Beach. Following are the photos I took of the eclipse as it unfolded.
To take these photos, I mounted my Canon Powershot camera on a tripod and set the zoom as far as it could go. I used some very slow shutter speeds to photograph the moon, starting with 1/200 of a second while the moon was still bright and switching to a slower speed of 5 seconds during the total eclipse.
What an awesome way to observe the winter solstice.
