Lunar eclipse.


Last year’s eclipse was cloudy, but the pictures actually came out better. Now I have hundreds of near-identical photos of a red-glowing moon, some shot through my tripod-mounted telephoto lens, some through my 8″ Dobsonian telescope. Why didn’t it occur to me to do something interesting, like take a wide-angle long-exposure shot and use a flashlight to make the trees all aglow? Maybe I’ll get it right in 2010.

  1. The forecast called for cloudy skies and snow showers. I almost forgot to watch.

    Then I stepped outside and saw fat stars and a moon sporting all three dimensions, looking like translucent henna-colored glass. What a miracle.
