Tonight’s Total Lunar Eclipse

There was a full lunar eclipse tonight that was, for the most part, visible here on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. I tried to get some pictures and offer up the following that start from the full eclipse and end when the full moon has just about returned. Light clouds made it impossible to get photos of the time leading up to the full blocking of the moon.

I had hoped for better shots but the light and rapidly moving clouds made taking pictures difficult. Maybe I'll do better when the next full lunar eclipse occurs in 2010.

Those photo's are telling me what it was like because I missed it. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for the pictures of what I missed because of heavy cloud cover.

Thanks also for including me in your list of interesting blogs. I'm flattered and will strive to continue to be worth reading.

Thanks for stopping by Monique (Middle Ditch). I wish the pictures had been better but light clouds distorted the view a bit. I hope you get to see the next lunar eclipse when it comes around in 2010.

Thanks for stopping by Shauna.

I do want to offer my condolences and I hope that you will be back writing in the near future.
