Eclipse Pics

I spent much of last week checking the weather forecast to see if we’d be able to watch the lunar eclipse. Michigan has a habit of spewing clouds when there’s interesting space stuff going on, and last night was no exception. For the first hour or so, it was completely overcast.

…and then gaps started to show up between the clouds. I got about an hour where I was able to see the eclipse and try to get some pictures.

It took me a while to start to figure out the best settings. I had thought about dragging the telescope out and trying to shoot some pics through that, but I decided the camera should be enough. Next time, I’m getting the telescope.

Here are five of the shots that turned out the best.

Our cat Taz snuck out of the house. I’m assuming he just wanted to watch the eclipse with me. Here he is hanging out under the light of the street lamp across the road.

These are very cool. And the one with Taz is channeling a very Halloween vibe in the best way.

Both moon and cat are stunning. Of course, moon and cats are two of my favorite things :-)
