Tonight's Blood Moon

Lunar eclipse totality on dusk leading to a lovely orangey moon. I didn't have time to organise a fancy shoot based on this event, so this is an opportunistic grab from the side of the road.

    David that's amazing! We had cloud at moonrise, so missed it. Saw it at about half eclipse. Great shot.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/ianrmc] Had to at least get one or two shots. Didn't have time to do a full progression this time around.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/apurdam] 'twas cloudy and hazy on the horizon at moon rise, but eventually got above that. Tricky shooting conditions though.
