Beaver Moon Partial Eclipse

 It was the longest partial eclipse in nearly 600 years.  It started roughly around midnight our time and ended nearly at sunup.  Teaching has been kicking my backside this year as every year, so I didn't stay up too late.  I did get up at 3am to catch the darkness.

It's also taken me several days to get these up, sorry major computer issues.  Hopefully a new computer soon.

I tried photo stacking on these shots.  It makes for a high megabyte but crisp photo but truthfully I need longer lenses for the moon shots.

If you are interested in taking moon shots, there are a few photography tips you need to know.  I suggest  Here is a good link with other moon shots taken from around the world.

If you search eclipse it will take you to articles on how to do the best photography.  As with my other moon shots here is one of my favorite poems by the Moody Blues at the end of Knights in White Satin:

Breathe deep the gathering gloom Watch lights fade from every room

Bedsitter people look back and lament Another day's useless energy spent

Impassioned lovers wrestle as one Lonely man cries for love and has none

New mother picks up and suckles her son Senior citizens wish they were young

Cold hearted orb that rules the night Remove all color from our sight

Red is grey and yellow white

But we decide which is right And which is an illusion

Until storm season . . . unless something else interesting happens.
