Red Moon Rising

On June 15, there was a rare full lunar eclipse that could be seen by most people in the Southern Hemisphere. I have never seen a lunar eclipse before and it was wild to sit and watch a shadow come over the moon. Once the moon was in the earth's shadow, it was very dim and had a faint red color.

I took about 50 photos but my camera just really isn't up to the task of taking good shots of the moon. The three pictures I posted are the best I took.

The next full lunar eclipse will be on July 27, 2018 but also will only be visible in the Southern Hemisphere.
