Last night the world went crazy over the super blood moon lunar eclipse. For the first time since 1982, a total lunar eclipse happened when there was a full super moon. We had clear skies in Rhode Island, so I was able to photograph it from my backyard. At about 9:15pm, the earth started to move between the sun and the moon, partially eclipsing the moon. At that point, the moon looked mostly like a waning gibbous moon, although you could sort of see the shaded part of the moon. At 10:15pm, we enter total eclipse and the moon just looked grayish/copper. The right side of the moon was still pretty bright.
At about 10:45, we reached maximum total eclipse and the moon turned burnt orange and red with light escaping from both sides.
We are lucky to have pretty dark skies in Rhode Island, so I was able to capture several stars along with the lunar eclipse. I used a Canon 6d on a Benro tripod with a 70-200mm lens set at 200mm to get this shot.
