Not all too long after coming back from Japan, I caught news that there will be a lunar eclipse. Moreover, it will be viewable from my location here in California. I admit, I’m a sucker for viewing astronomical events. With that said, I have missed viewing the Pleiades meteor shower every year due to various reasons. This eclipse though, I stayed up along with my roommate to see.
With my old 18-55mm lens damaged, I can no longer zoom in for nice big photos. Even so, one of the photos turned out pretty nice with the red tint of the moon and the canopies of surrounding trees creeping into the picture. The photo directly above was merged from 3 photos showing a three step progression of the eclipse.
