I promise I’ll finish up the Alaska posts Real Soon Now, but I wanted to show this picture of last nights Lunar eclipse. Here is a shot taken at 04:59 CDT August 28, 2007, just after totality began. The moon was quite low on our western horizon so I didn’t get to see it at mid-eclipse.
I’m not sure why but this turned out to be one of the darkest eclipses that can I remember. I know several people who said they were looking around the time this was taken and didn’t see it.
Photo details: exposure 1.3 second at f/5.6, ISO 1600 and F.L. 300mm.
