Moon Eclipse (19)v2.jpg

On May 26th there was a full moon accompanied with an eclipse at about 5:15am. The Moon had just come out of from behind a cloud and had settled into a slight haze on the horizon about 5:00am, just moments before the total eclipse.

Nice shot Jim. I was clouded out until the eclipse was over so I didn't get to see or photograph it. It appears it was redder than I expected seeing that entire Moon just barely made it inside of the Earth's Umbra. While a completely deep red Moon can be quite dramatic, having a sliver of curved white showing the curvature of the Earth is pretty neat.
