Did you get up to watch the Supermoon Lunar Eclipse? It started in the UK on Monday night at around 1:10 am BST…
Having enjoyed watching the Supermoon rise as per my previous blog post I decided that I would set the alarm and get myself out of bed to watch see at least the blood moon… which takes its name from the reddish hue the moon takes as Earth’s shadow passes over it. so at 3.10 am I got up… I have to say that I was a little disappointed as to the naked eye it look more like a muddy moon.
Now as you know, Dogs, Horses and People are what I normally photograph so the moon was challenge… I have to say its a lot easier when its glowing white!
So I had a go and I am reasonably happy with my results.
I waited a little longer to see the what would happen as it came out of the Eclipse and took a couple of shots before I decided to go back in to get some sleep and try and warm up!
If you missed it. Here are some of the next best astronomical events visible from the UK with the naked eye, as per the Telegraph on line… http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/11895052/Supermoon-lunar-eclipse-2015-Amazing-pictures-of-once-in-a-generation-event-live.html
