First Lunar Eclipse of 2014

 

 

 

These photos were shot in south Baton Rouge on Tuesday morning at 2:45 am.  This eclipse marked the beginning of a tetrad, a series of four total lunar eclipses in a row. The next three total eclipses will be occurring on Oct. 8, 2014, April 4, 2015, and the final occurring on Sept. 28, 2015.

 

ECL 1

 

The ‘ghosting’ is the rapid movement of the clouds during a 2 second exposure.

 

ECL 2

 

Below the moon is Spica, in the constellation Virgo, and Mars is further west(right) in the shots.

I expect to have better photos after the next eclipse… weather permitting. Ha.
