I wasn’t planning to get up in the middle of the night and take photos of the full moon, but when I woke up shortly before 2:00 a.m. I decided that I should at least check it out. I think it was worth going outside in my bathrobe in sub-freezing temperatures to see this. I didn’t wait to for the peak of the lunar eclipse, but instead went back to bed to get some rest before my 5:30 a.m. alarm.

    1. Thank you! I wish I would have done a little more prep work with my camera settings and tripod prior to going to bed. I did a little fumbling around in the dark when I got up, but am happy with the shots I did get. Thank you for your comment.


  1. Beautiful image’s! I was up at 1:45 but it was cloudy in Maryland so I just went to bed. I figured someone would capture some amazing images of the blood moon and it looks like you did!! 🙂 excellent job.


    1. Thank you! Sorry to hear that you were up that late, but had no success in seeing the moon. There are definitely some wonderful images around the web to enjoy despite your missing out.
      Thanks again!
