I spent a lovely nigh out last night, even while waiting on the clouds to cooperate and leave the area. I had everything set up, battery charged on my camera and cat in lap as I set about the waiting game. The clouds did eventually break up long enough for full enjoyment of the “blood” phase, I know that is not its technical name, and just the last part of the total eclipse.It was nice to watch something larger than all of us played out on such a wonderful night. As I started to take a few dial-in shots, my camera’s supposedly fully charge battery failed. Well I went in and grabbed my Sony A37 and went about learning on the fly almost all its manual adjustments in one setting! With that as a back drop: I have several big events coming up in the next week to one in a few months. It was nice to see how truly small those things are in the face of the sky. Here my best of the Super Blood Moon and lunar eclipse.

I like! Especially that you were able to capture some stars in your first image. We have too much ground light around us, but could see a few stars. We were very lucky that the heavy cloud cover did not come until the moon was completely red.
I am glad you all got to see it because is was way-cool!
As for the stars…..The first half-a-dozen tries with the A37 I set the shutter sped for way-to-long…. and the stars AND the moon were streaks:Cool but not what I was going for. Several more tries and I had about the best I could get with the cheap kit lens but was just happy to be there in that moment: Wonderful to behold!
