Blood Red Lunar Eclipse

Blood Red Lunar Eclipse

The Blood Red Lunar Eclipse of September 27, 2015, was indeed spectacular in the crystal clear high desert skies over Albuquerque, New Mexico.

In April of 2015 I had gone out in the middle of a cold night to see the brief one that occurred then. I’m glad I made the effort to see that one, because it gave me an appreciation for everything about this one that led to all of the hype.

This is a time lapse slideshow of some of my images from the eclipse:

 

This gallery of images highlights some of the major markers during the course of the eclipse:

The skies here never disappoint.

I hope you have enjoyed this presentation of images, whether you got to see the eclipse in person and especially if you did not. I appreciate your interest!

  1. I like the strand of moon shots like a necklace of pearls with the center section the blood red standout from the rest, seems like a fall agricultural festival image perhaps of harvest time, celebration and ultimatel renewal for the dark months ahead. Thanks for taking the time with your handy clear skies in NM.

    • Hi, Jim. That is my favorite image also, but I had fun going through all of them – time passed so quickly that night that not everything soaked into my mind. Of course, it still hasn’t 😉 and I want a do-over, but even the possibility for that doesn’t happen until 2033 🙂 )))))) So, in the interim I have the images, and I’m really glad you like the string of pearls.
      Thanks for dropping by.

  2. I really like the video. I hadn’t thought of putting a video together. Your point-of-view has a slightly different look from mine. I was squarely in front of the mountains, whereas, I assume you are somewhere close to your house, south and east of me? I’m so happy we had such a clear and calm evening to capture this eclipse.

    • Hi, Tim. I was on my patio through the entire thing! Had the tripod set up. Could walk in the door for water or tea. I think I ate some strawberries at some point. After such a short, cold, middle-of-the-night experience in April, I really appreciated every single thing about this opportunity. Even if I live to see the one in 2033, I think it is on January 31 (don’t hold me to that), and in the middle of the night. How much fun will that be for five hours? Yes, along with you I am still ecstatic about the perfect evening we had to capture this eclipse.
      As for the video, I am trying to think of as many ways as possible to share the experience with people. It was just too good not to share. 🙂
      See you and Laurie soon!
