So, I didn't stay up all night photographing the eclipse this time, but now I wish I had with the increased resolution of the 5D MK II. Since I don't have any new images I'll share this shot of the moon in total eclipse I took on Aug 28, 2007. The star field was added from a different image to add depth and context.


My most popular image from the 2007 lunar event, "Lunar Eclipse Over Mt. Shasta", can be seen in my photostream. It was part of an exhibit in the Smithsonian.

The Lunar Eclipse process starting from the full moon through to when dawn was breaking and the moon took on a pinkish tone.

I am sure some of my astrophotography contacts will laugh at this measly image but I was surprised I was able to get anything. It was cloudy when I went to bed but the clouds did breakoff just in time. ( explore # 13 ) my thanks to everyone

Spent an amazing night taking photos of the moon, stars, and sculptures in the moonlight.

I was not quite awake when I took this at 6:30am, so it is what it is. :)

This was the best I could manage of last night's lunar eclipse before the clouds set in.

Does anybody know what the other dot is??

Last remains of the June 15 eclipse 2011.

Lunar Eclipse 15 June 2011 from Totality to Full Moon as seen from Altea (Spain). Combined composite of different exposures.

This morning's total lunar eclipse. Handheld (unfortunately).

I started this sequence at around 6:05 am this morning. Wish I could have gotten the other half of the sequence, but moonset occurred before the full lunar eclipse was over.

Spent an amazing night taking photos of the moon, stars, and sculptures in the moonlight.

Got up really early this morning to watch and capture the lunar eclipse. Here are some of my captures in a collage. Unfortunately my "old" camera didn't work as well as I hoped for and at the end the camera fogged up ;-( Oh well - the next blood moon is April 15, 2015 ;-)

Now I'm on my way to catch up with everybody - sorry I'm so far behind again!!

This is my favorite- it was very different from the rest of my photos as the clouds appeared as fire around the lunar eclipse.

Okay, so I got out there a little late, but I still got a pretty colored moon!

Shot through scope around 7:45 pm.


It is often difficult to tell the difference between a penumbral eclipse and a regular Full Moon. However, this eclipse is easier to spot than an average penumbral eclipse because the Moon travels through the darkest areas of Earth’s penumbra, only just missing the umbra, the shadow's dark core. As a result, the Moon looks considerably darker on one side, making the shadow visible to the naked eye.


Penumbral lunar eclipses are generally less spectacular than total lunar eclipses, also known as Blood Moons.
