Blood moon at lunar eclipse totality
Rushmore Photography shared these photos of this mornings eclipse. Fortunately there were no clouds, just a little haze. We’ve seen a lot of photos of the eclipse, and heard a lot of talk of the ‘blood moon’. It was a spectacular site and we thank the photographers for submitting these photos. The weather was quite a bit warmer than the last time they shot a lunar eclipse. “We didn’t wait for the ‘unveiling’, as our feet were getting very cold. When we finished our shoot, we came in and covered our tootsies with a heating pad.”
“We shot close to three hundred pictures during the first half to totality and are working on building a time lapse.”
“Not quite blood moon in this shot, but we still have a couple of hundred shots to look at. We might find a better one.”
“We feel this is orange blood. We’ve seen blood moon during forest fires!”
“We call this one the ‘Odd Balls’.
We hope you have enjoyed the blood, or should we say orange moon photos by Rushmore Photography of the Black Hills.
