Lunar eclipse

Last night was a full lunar eclipse in my corner of the world. Here's the best shot I was able to capture, without a tripod. Not too bad, but it doesn't come close to the WOW factor of seeing it in person, watching the moon get eaten up ... and watch the stars appear to become so much brighter. Even though the wind chill had temps close to -10F, it was well worth it to race outside every 5 minutes to see the progress of the eclipse!

It was pretty awesome to watch here too. Mt DD (14) was totally speechless. I know she has seen eclipses before but this one really got her!
