The Bloke and I both love photography, so we were really excited about the Super Blood Moon that was expected to appear yesterday night. We had been checking the weather forecast all week, and set our alarms for 2.00am so we could set up in time to get some decent shots.
It was freezing outside, but we went out into the back garden. The sky was absolutely perfect – there wasn’t a single cloud and we could see everything really clearly…
It was a truly spectacular sight – I’d never witnessed anything like that before (being just a year old when it last appeared in 1982), so for a while I just stood and watched. Beautiful.
However, while I was able to get a few decent shots just as the eclipse began, I found it difficult to get a clear picture of the Super Blood Moon at the height of the eclipse – it was a glorious colour in the sky, but the lack of light (and my inability to see my controls on the camera to change the settings) meant that lots of the images came out quite blurry.
These are my favourite two, which I thought I’d share:
Both were taken with my Canon PowerShot SX270 HS, and have been cropped using my iPhone.
What about you guys? Did you see the super moon?
