Lunar Eclipse of April 15, 2014

A cold front passed through the region and the skies cleared up in time for this long-anticipated lunar eclipse. I went to bed early and got up shortly before the Moon was completely engulfed in Earth's shadow. It was a spectacular night!

  1. Great capture, Rory. God had created some beautiful wonders for us to enjoy!!
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Wonderful image, Rory! Yours is considerably redder than mine. I'm left wondering why and not knowing. The mechanism causing the color is the same.

    1. I enhanced the color a bit. The original image looked paler than I remembered it looking with the naked eye. I also sharpened a little.
