December 21, 2010 Lunar Eclipse

Yes, I got up to see the December 21st total eclipse of the moon on the Winter Solstice!  Just wish I'd woke up enough to get a tripod out - could have gotten better pics - but it was pretty awesome here in Galveston.   I shared these photos on Facebook so here they are for my Blogging friends.

This was taken about 1/2 hour into the eclipse. Before the eclipse started the full moon that night was very bright and white.


View of the sky taken about 2:45 a.m. (Central Time). See the little reddish dot?  That’s the moon!


Oh, if I'd only got a tripod out! Thought I could hold my camera still. But what a color!


Awesome.  I got a crick in my neck from looking straight up into the sky.


Again, no tripod but it was beautiful.



  1. Wasn't it awesome?! I love your blog, what a cool idea..can't wait to see what the future holds!
