Total Eclipse

We had a total lunar eclipse tonight. At the start, we got some very dense cloud cover that prevented viewing. But, as the eclipse progressed, the clouds cleared, and we were actually able to enjoy the show. Here are a few pics that I took. A few more are here. I took over 400 pics trying to get these few good shots... To me, it was worth it.

8:42PM...the eclipse starts at 8:43PM.

9PM...you can notice the eclipse starting in the lower left.



10:34PM...total eclipse in progress. Why is the lower right so white?
11:42PM...the eclipse is almost done.
