Hopefully you got to see the Super Blood Moon eclipse tonight! It was quite… spectacular. And long! For us in the Central time zone, it began around 8:07 PM and ended around 11:27 PM. The total eclipse began around 9:11 PM, peaking at 9:47 PM.
The Husbear and I headed to the end of our road to observe, as the moon was obscured by the trees on the ridgeline we live on. And we were greeted with the start of the show.
I managed to take these pictures with my iPhone and an olloclip 2X telephoto lens. I was actually surprised how well they turned out.
We ended up coming back to the house around 9 PM, and I watched the rest of the show from there, as the moon had finally cleared the trees on the ridge.
The last supermoon eclipse happened in 1982 when I was 9, and the next won’t occur until 2033 when I’ll be 60. Here’s hoping I’m around to see it.
Until next time...
