Lunar Eclipse captured from Northern Virginia, 20-21 January 2019. The temperature was in the teens with single digit wind chills, but the sky was beautifully clear.
A couple multiple exposure images from this week’s total Lunar eclipse. The clouds rolled in when the eclipse was at its maximum, then cleared for a while before covering the sky again.
This second multiple exposure was taken with a wide angle lens and shows how the moon progressed across the sky.
I don’t do very much with astrophotography, but I thought I’d give it a try with the triple conjunction yesterday evening. Venus is on the left, Mars is above it and slightly to the right, the crescent Moon is on the right, partially illuminated by earthshine.
I was honored last week to have one of my images selected by Steve Beltz to receive 1st place in the Advanced Color category of the Loudoun Photography Club’s “Water” competition. It’s a wonderful tribute to our Founding Fathers.
