We Like The Moon

No, really...

Registration shot right at the start of the eclipse with a lens artifact showing the encroaching shadow.

Um...just a little bit later, closer up.

Coming up to the halfway point.  Eclipses don't appear so sharp as your usual moon phase.

Right at the beginning of totality, the reddish color shows it ain't just a cloudy night.

Totality wide shot.  Saturn on the left, Regulus above and to the right, Leo roaring over the whole thing.

Didn't feel like shooting after the shadow was moving off, but I suspect you can figure out what it looked like.

There's nothing like that special shade of red.

Those are great, NTodd. Exactly what I saw through my jiggly telescope last night.

You should have sent that last one to Wired.
