Lunar Eclipse

We were blessed with clear skies tonight, so we managed to get some pictures of the lunar eclipse. But why does it have to be so freezing cold whenever we get a good view of space?


Unfortunately, we weren't very scientific tonight. The first picture was taken at approximately 10:20 PM est and the second at around 10:35 PM. If the moon did anything after that, it was on its own. Our feet had become ice cubes.
We THINK we also managed to get a shot of the star Regulus. Can you see the speck on the upper right corner of this picture? That's a star. Regulus and Saturn were sandwiching the moon. Unfortunately, we didn't get a shot of Saturn.

Thank you for the picture. We couldn't see the moon because of Adee Towers. But the next morning we saw a phenomenal moon set. The moon was so bright and shiny hanging low in the western sky over the park. Worth getting up at 5:30 a.m.

Love, Mom
