We weren’t sure if we were going to be able to see the lunar eclipse Monday night. It had been snowing and raining all weekend, and the forecast called for the weather to continue through the week. Even Monday through the day it was mostly overcast. But after sunset the clouds parted and the stars came out, and we ended up having a perfect, if cold, opportunity to view a total lunar eclipse.
My efforts to get a good picture of the eclipse were hampered by lack of equipment; my zoom lens just doesn’t have the sharpness required to take a good picture of the moon. Cathleen Allison did better. And I really wanted mine to turn out like this.
