The Supermoon Show September 2015

Tonight was the big showdown of the Supermoon September 27, 2015, and  we were able to get outside with beautiful clear skies, and watch the moon rise, be eclipsed, and then watched the eclipse pass.  It was amazing! I had my telephoto lens, and tripod with me, and several of our close friends were able to come and hang out with us as we watched the moon rise.  It was an event all of us will remember.

I took a lot of pictures of the moon, and some turned out pretty good.  I'll share the better ones with you, and then below you can see the collage I made with the pictures of the moon as the eclipse progressed and waned.




You can see that the moon was fully eclipsed at this point, which was pretty amazing to see.



Now, as the eclipse is passing, you can see the light of the moon returning slowly, a little at a time. It was hard to capture this with my lens, because of the contrast of light and dark.  I was happy to get this picture!






Finally the eclipse had passed, and the bright light of the moon shone clear again.  In fact, the moon was shining SO bright, I could not get a clear picture of it at all!  Usually my lens will pick out features on the moon, but not tonight.  It was indeed a supermoon!



Here is a collage of the best pictures I took tonight so you can clearly see the phases of the lunar eclipse over the supermoon.  It was an incredible experience, and one that we were all very excited to witness.  :)

  13. Thanks so much for sharing. I had only my eyes. My husband tried with his cell phone, but it didn't work. I've loved seeing all the photos on the internet. Have you seen the one of the blood moon over Jerusalem at the Wailing Wall? Breathtaking!
    Thanks for inviting me to see your photos.
    Blessings from Harvest Lane Cottage,

  14. Fascinating. My absolute favorite photo is #2. I love the orange moon in the deep blue sky with the pines silhouetted. Lovely

    1. I love #2 as well, it was quite something that I was able to pick up the silhouettes, and the red moon, as the light was so difficult. It was an amazing event to witness for sure! :)
