Dutch supermoon eclipse by bverbrugge

Catching the rare super blood moon total eclipse gave me a short night. The wheather predictions weren’t that great. When I woke up at 03.30 (a.m) I could see the eclipse clearly from my bedroom window. So I left home by bicycle to go to a spot where I would have a nice foreground. There was a bit of mist, but luckily not too much. It was worth the early rise. What a magnificent night it was. Live is a gift!

FYI: I used two exposures, as the rotation of the moon does not allow long exposure photos.

Super London Blood Moon by RussFrancisPhotography

A very last minute decision to venture out and make the most of the phenomenon of a lunar eclipse shared with a super-moon. The last time the 2 were witnessed was 1982 – and the next will be in 2033.

Using the dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral to add a dash of London, the moon was out in spectacular fashion, an amazing sight indeed
