The Lunar Eclipse

Star-gazing.  Love it!  Got to have the right gear…to go with my MU Tiger pj’s for a cold winter night.

At  5 am could see the moon was full and bright.  Took more pics at 6 am.  Then about 7am – just before dawn, it became larger and orangish/yellow.  What a sight.  My cell phone camera and shaky hands didn’t capture very good pics.  However, click here for the Earth Sky facebook page.  People took pics from all over the World.  I added them below (with credits).

What a great start to the day.  My pictures don’t hold a candle to any that I found at Earth Sky’s Facebook page…take a look.
