Eclipse and Blood Moon

Here are a few pictures from this evening's lunar eclipse.

We almost missed it. Good thing they showed a shot on the Sunday Night Football broadcast.

The moon is almost completely in the earth's shadow at this point. I didn't notice the purple tinge with the naked eye but it shows pretty clearly in the photo. I don't think it is a camera or lens effect.

Here the eclipse is total although the light might have been a little more even a little later. At this point there wasn't enough light to autofocus. Had to do it manually.
