Did you happen to catch the lunar eclipse the other night? Wow…just breathtaking.
*Warning, this is a photo heavy post, so apologies if it’s loading slow for you!
We went outside around 11pm, and the sky was clear and the moon bright.
It was cold, though not as bad as it can get out here. It was about 36 degrees but the wind was howling which made it feel much colder. Although we hopped back and forth between the deck and the house to warm up, my fingers were still burning and close to frostbite after an hour.
The stars grew increasingly brighter as the moon was shadowed and I saw 7 shooting stars in all during my 2 hours total photographing the event. Here’s Orion’s belt:
And then once the moon was completely covered by the Earth’s shadow, it turned an orange/red color and looked like an entirely different planet.
Amazing, right? Mother Nature never ceases to amaze. So glad we braved the cold and late night to experience this. Hope you were able to get a view as well!
