    What am I seeing in the 5th pic? Is the moon exploding?

    Those look awesome btw. We got two feet of snow last night so visibility was zero.

    Ugh, none of my shots of the moon in total eclipse came out. Got some cool ones of the shadow crawling across the full moon though.

    wow, what camera did you guys use? The only thing I was able to capture was a blurry small white dot :( I've never seen the moon with the red glow before in person, so it was definitely eery. Nice pics, guys.

    I've got a Canon Rebel xTi with a 300mm telescopic lens. It was still incredibly difficult, as I've only tried skyshooting a few times prior. Like I said, the moon in full penumbra was hard to shoot and all my pics of that came out blurry.

    Also, I live in Alaska and it was -10°F that night, so screw standing outside for too long.

    Thanks to the usual overcast skies in Oregon I missed the lunar eclipse. I couldn't see shit.
