Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse

After spending 3+ hours on a very cloudy night, staring at the sky, waiting for fleeting moments of the eclipse, this is what I was able to capture.  Trying to keep my lens pointed in the right direction as the moon hid behind a never-ending cloudy sky was the hardest part.  Every time the moon presented herself I would scramble to adjust and shoot in those mere seconds she was visible. 

While frustrating that I could not revel in the spender of the moon the whole 3 hours, I am still glad I did it.  It gave me time to ponder the universe and our connection to everything in it.   For just a few hours that day millions of people all stopped to stare at the same magical event. 

It's crazy to think that something so simple as a shadow still fascinates the masses and stirs intrigue.
