Blood moon tonight

Post by Narmnaleg » Wed Oct 08, 2014 8:57 pm

I thought I'd mention that a "blood moon" will be out tonight for anyone interested. The eclipse is already underway and will be at its full blood level in about 20 minutes.

I managed to take a couple of photos of the partial about 20 minutes ago with an adhoc setup. Got my tripod, got the right lens ready, went back outside and full cloud cover! :(

Yeah, we had a great view until it was half covered and then the cloud rolled in. Looked great through the binocs though.

It stuck its head out for about 45 seconds. This is the best I could do, the darned clouds were covering it the whole time:
