Morning lunar eclipse

Normally we see a lunar eclipse at some point in the middle of the night, the moon is high in the sky and it becomes almost “seen one, you’ve seen them all” kind of experience. This eclipse however was different. Occurring at moonset, it gave one a chance to give the viewer the moon compared to a horizon, producing a new image of an eclipse. This also was during a ‘super moon’ and a blue moon (second full moon in a month). This image was made about 07:22; sunrise was 07:28. The yellow color comer from the approaching sun and seeing the moon through the earth’s atmosphere.

About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
