Categories: Lunar Eclipse
The Hunter’s Moon arrived on the last week of September accompanied by a full eclipse. At 7:30 pm we were to see a full lunar eclipse in Portland, weather permitting.
I stepped out on the deck soon after dark, placed the camera on a sturdy tripod and set the remote control to function in self-timer mode. I took some shots of the downtown lights to check the camera settings.
I was waiting with great anticipation to see the Blood Moon. It gets its name from the gorgeous reddish-gold color the slightly-larger-than-normal full moon becomes as it dives into the planet’s shadow.
Amazing! At 7:30 pm I could see the full moon at full eclipse. I started taking photos and managed to get several at the peak of the eclipse.
Life is good.
