Lunar Eclipse


Taken from Brooks, Georgia this eclipse was nice deep red. The above collage was started just as the eclipse began and stops just past full eclipse. The clouds rolled in just after full eclipse. Many thanks to Doug Maxwell of the Flint River Astronomy Club for allowing me to setup in his field.
