Colorado Lunar Eclipse - 4/15/2014

Here are a few photographs of the Lunar Eclipse from early this morning as seen from Northern Colorado. I shot these with my old Nikon 5400. It is times like this that I wish I had a higher-end DSLR camera with a good zoom. That said the old Nikon does a pretty good job given it's technological limitations.

Minutes before the full  Lunar Eclipse

Nightscape as the moon goes into the Earth's shadow.

Nightscape ten minutes after full eclipse


The Moon and Mars - 20 minutes into the event. Spica is the star very "close" to the moon. Mars is visible to the upper right at it's closest point to Earth this year. 

Wishing for higher resolution.
