Here's some attempts at shooting the Lunar Eclipse. A Lunar Eclipse happens when the moon and the sun are opposite of each other with the earth in between, casting a shadow. Even though its a total lunar eclipse, a reddish brown glow will occur because indirect sun light will still manage to find its way to the moon. The tint is due to the amount of pollution from the viewing area. This event helped Aristotle determine that the earth was round.

This series of shots is a time lapse of the event. The light flare has been left in intentionally on several shots.
