Just last week there was an eclipse of the earth casting its shadow on the moon. Lucky for me I had the night off work so I was able to photograph it! To the naked eye it did have an orange/red glow but it didn’t come up to well in the photos so I corrected them in post. This eclipse was nicknamed Blood Moon because of the color. It was quite beautiful!

I experimented with longer exposures to make the glow more prominent. The over exposure caused a little lens flare too!

And here is a shot with a “correct” exposure and more of the red shadow showing. If you look carefully in the red section, there is a darker shadow where you can see the “rabbit in the moon” that is part of Japanese folklore.
