The bright sun-lit part of the moon is still obscuring the redness.  Note when I adjust the exposure:

Its really quite an awe inspiring event especially when looking at it with the naked eye; I couldn't be bothered lugging out the DSLR and messing around with a tripod and lens/settings. We were quite content watching this amazing celestial event with our own eyes. Besides based on my FB feed it seems every other person on social media is posting pics so I'm sure I'll have lots to choose from....

Yeah, it looks really freaky in full eclipse, like a maroon ball or balloon in the sky.

Too much cloud overhead for me to see anything, bit of a bust.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

Not very experienced at shooting the moon, but I did get several captures. Wound up combining four of them (taken in a span of fewer than two minutes) which shows the moon's movement in that time span. The camera was on a tripod, with a telephoto lens at 300mm, using a timer for each capture to avoid camera shake.

Now seriously how cool would it be to be pointing your camera at a celestial event this spectacular and then *this* happens as you're taking the shot? It would make all that fumbling about to set up the tripod, lens and camera settings worthwhile:

Holy crap, ASE.

I can’t believe I just saw that video. As I was sitting in my backyard looking up at the moon with my binos I fa-reeking saw that flash and wondered what in the high hell it was. To the naked eye it was much brighter and flashier, making me think something in the yard had suddenly flashed up. I eventually chalked it up to my imagination.

Now I’ve got the real answer. Thanks for that.
