My Lunar Eclipse Photos

Here are a few of my favorites from the eclipse this morning. First up, a nice wide view of a partially eclipsed Moon over some Tucson city lights.

Now a zoomed in view.

Wide view with the deep blue of early twilight.

Back to close up.

And finally, one of the last pics I got before the Moon faded from site due to the brightening sky and the increasingly eclipsed Moon.

Obviously, I didn’t see the senelion here. The Moon vanished before sunrise. I don’t see how you can see this with a totally eclipsed Moon. Maybe with a partially eclipsed Moon.  Look forward to seeing if anyone got pics of that using a fisheye lens or something similar.

    No senelion from my location either. Didn’t even look close.
