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.
From what I heard earlier today, we are lucky to have seen the eclipse because many people did not due to lights, etc. The sight made getting up at 4:00 AM worthwhile. This is a great picture…way to go!
Wow! That is awesome!
Beautiful picture of the eclipse. For some reason I missed the information that it was to occur.
Tom, I’ll echo the comments that yes, it’s a grand picture. Good Work!
I was lying awake in bed at about eclipse-time and from all area reports it was visible even here in the city.
Unfortunately, I just couldn’t drag myself out of bed and into the Florida pre-dawn to check it out.
That is a beautiful sight. Thanks for sharing.
Oh I went to meet my new granddaughter and see my grandson & son. I have put a new post on my blog.
Haven’t heard much from you Tom. Everything OK?
Just been very busy, Alice. No real problems except too much to do. I’ll be posting about the activities in a while (Real Soon Now).
I also still need to get the Alaska stuff finished. Keep bugging me.
