Full Moon Eclipse



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

Betsy and I missed the beginning of the full moon eclipse, but we woke up to see the latter part of it. This is what we saw when we got outside.

Oh wow! What a great picture! I didn't know one was happening. Daytime here now, so I guess I missed it!
Have a fabulous day!

I had to close at work that night and didn't think about the eclipse until I woke up the next morning. Well at least you were able to get a great shot of it.

Great capture George! I saw the begining of it and took some terrible pictures. My son stayed up and said the would take some for me.
Like mother like son. :(

Lovely photo, George. Thanks. We had so much cloud cover here that there was no chance to see it. I kept wandering outside and casting my eyes to the heavens to see if there was a chance I could get even a glimpse, but no luck. Won't happen again in MY lifetime.

I would love to have seen this. In a way it is rather freighting to see it like that.

Last full moon eclipse in Brazil, I was sleeping! I got so angry, miss something like that is not cool.

Great shot!

Wow, great photo! Our weather was too cloudy to see any of the eclipse, so I'm glad to experience it through your photo, George.
