Total Lunar Eclipse

20-21 February 2008 Total Lunar Eclipse


The video below contains some stills and a couple of short video clips of last nights Total Lunar Eclipse. The evening started out great, a nice clear sky and decent temperatures. However, as the eclipse started the clouds gathered and I gave up bringing everything back inside. About the time I was sure that Duke was going to loose its basketball game I decided to turn in. I then thought, what the heck I'll check on the cloud cover. Well the clouds had for the most part completely dissapeard and the full moon was totally eclipsed. I brought out all my equipment on the back proch and started snapping pictures. The results are below, enjoy.
