The Fox and The Rabbit by grizzlysghost

The Fox and The Rabbit

The light hitting the moon is red because it's being filtered by the Earth's atmosphere. I like to think of it as witnessing every sunset and sunrise happing at this exact moment on the entire planet.

This is the last shot I was able to get of the Lunar Eclipse before the clouds completely moved in, which is just a few minutes before full eclipse. I have a lot of photos leading up to this event and may try to piece together a composite later, but many of them were shot through clouds. Even in this image there is a thin veil of clouds between me and the moon.

To the right of the moon is a star I believe to be Spica, the brightest star in the Virgo constellation. Mars was clearly visible as well, but is far out of frame. If not for the clouds, it was a nice night for sky-watching!
Wow that's an awesome shot. Beautiful.

What size lens were you using, Aaron?
April 15th, 2014  
Fabulous shot of the blood moon!
April 15th, 2014  
Excellent Aaron! I watched and decided not to shoot! Good the cloud Gods cooperated just enough to leave open a gap to get the orange effect!

Beautiful, despite the clouds in the way! I had to move around to keep the clouds out of the way, shoot through trees, etc. Ultimately, I posted the first photo I took when I stepped outside of the house in my pajamas.

Gorgeous!! So jealous that you got to see it ... we had a massive cloud covering that blocked our view.

This looks like a planet, rather than the moon. For some reason my brain sees this as a scene in a Sci-Fi movie.
April 15th, 2014  
Woa! What a stunning shot! :)
April 15th, 2014
