Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse | As seen from Lindenhurst, Illinois on 4.15.2014
Last night a total lunar eclipse was able to be seen from all of North America. This meant that I sat myself in my driveway for a few hours and watched our universe do its amazing thing. From 12:30am CST until 2:20am CST I popped out of the garage (since you know it was a balmy 20 degrees in northern Illinois last night with snow on the ground) to capture this awesome sight. Unwilling to dig my tragically terrible tripod out of storage, I managed to hand hold my Canon 5D Mark II with my 70-200mm. I can't say that I have a desire to take up astro photography, but this was pretty fun and a highlight for me! I hope you all enjoy what I was able to witness last night while you were all slumbering.
Did you see it too? What did you think?!?!
