Moon, September 27, 2015

How could one resist photographing the moon on this special night, the night of the complete lunar eclipse? I was in Wisconsin for the big astronomical event. These three photos capture the moon as seen looking southward from the shores of Lake Monona (Madison) before the eclipse began (photos 1 and 2, when the night threatened to be too cloudy to see the eclipse), and then (photo 3) during the complete eclipse, as seen from a park in nearby Fitchburg.
