Total Eclipse of the Moon

This is the last total lunar eclipse until December 2010.

The photos show the changes in the moon from in front of my house in Burnsville, Minnasota. It was about -3 degrees so I did not spend a lot of time out side. I'd go out shoot some photos and come back in but I'd leave my camera out in the non-heated garage. The first full moon I shot is grossly over exposed. After each shoot, I'd look at my frames and make adjustments in how to shoot the next batch.

The moon was full and silver at 7:30 pm.

The shadow of the earth has crept in it to the bottom left corner of the moon at 8:46 pm.

More of the earth's shadow has moved across the face of the moon 8:11 pm.

Only a sliver of the moon is uncovered at 8:47 pm.

The moon turned red as it pased through the Earth's shadow at 9:07 pm.

Roxana and Tayja, who got to stay up way past her normal bed time, watched the shadow of the earth cover the full face of the moon.

Enigma - Total Eclipse Of The Moon Lyrics

Miles Away From Light At Noon
Total Eclipse Of The Moon
Many Reasons To Believe In Life
Just Listen What It`s Telling You

Come And Have A Look Inside
Total Eclipse Of The Moon
Don`t Be Childish, Don`t Be So Cruel
I`m Feeling Just Lonely Without.... Without You

I Can See The Wide Horizons
But Debts Have To Be Paid
Our Ways Will Cross Again Someday
Believe, And Come Back To You...I`ll See You Soon

Time Doesn`t Say Hello
Total Eclipse Of The Moon
Many Nights In Our Lives Before
I Was Dreaming To Be Just Beside...Beside You

Total Eclipse Of The Moon...I`ll See You Soon
