Goodnight Moon…

21 02 2008

Tonight we were able to witness the Lunar Eclipse!!!  It was awesome.  It seems whenever there’s been an eclipse in the past, I couldn’t see it due to….the weather….or time of night….or too many clouds in the sky…or I forgot  😀 .

Thanks to my mom giving me a quick call to remind me, I was able to grab the camera and tripod and take some pictures until the moon was fully tucked in.

Here are several shots of the moon taken between 9 and 10pm as the earth passed between it and the sun.

Using a slower shutter speed allows you to see more of the moon beneath the shadow…

If you weren’t able to catch it tonight, be sure to check it out in 2010!!
