Blood Moon with Full Eclipse
From New Zealand the night of the 26th we were luck enough to see a Full Blood moon combined with a nearly total Lunar Eclipse. If I heard correctly this hasn’t occurred (at least here) for 40 years. These pics were taken with my camera so aren’t the best, but at least I could capture something. The moon was quite high in the sky so it appeared small (we don’t have a view of the horizon because of trees so we couldn’t see it when it first rose) but it was still very interesting to see.

These pictures were adjusted for sharpness with Corel PaintShop Pro. You can read more about that product (which I highly recommend) here.
