Blood Moon

Here's a shot of the blood moon (lunar eclipse during a full moon) that happened early this morning around 1:30am! A lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, moon, and earth come into alignment, and the moon falls into the shadow of the earth. According to the Star Advertiser, "while the Earth's atmosphere does block the shorter wavelengths of blue light from getting past the Earth and hitting the moon, the longer wavelengths of red light make it through our Earth's atmosphere and continue to strike the moon."

 Shot on the D4s w/70-200mm VRII, f4.8, 1/60 sec, ISO 25,600, handheld.
