    Cloudy, But Here Are Photos of Tonight's Lunar Eclipse

    It was a little cloudy here in Tulsa, but we had a pretty good showing of the lunar eclipse tonight. Here are a few photos I took of it.

    Great photos! My camera is no where as good as yours. I got a blurry orange circle instead.

    Thanks! I used a tripod and remote shutter release because it was a long exposure. It is really hard to get good photos of the moon!

    thank you for the great pictures. We were totally clouded over so we did not get to see it. Very disappointed.

    Thanks for sharing. We could only see a bright whitish spot through the cloud cover here in Georgia.

    We had the huge cloud cover too. It was very disappointing not to be able to see it. I really appreciate everyone sharing their pics.

    Thank you, it was too foggy here to see anything
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Thank you for your photos Jeanne. It's the long exposure makes it spectacular.

    Our church service was held outside for worship so we could watch the moon rise. Here is an iPhone shot as it was coming up.

    Your pictures are great.
    I didn't catch the time it was to occur. I did see the bright moon after the blood and eclipse. It was extremely bright. I won't be here in 33 years when we are to have another Super moon.

    Great photos. I didn't even try to see it, we were so overcast I couldn't have been able to tell the difference between the eclipse and the cloud cover

    I was so looking forward to seeing this but where I am, near D.C. it was totally clouded over. So disappointed. Afraid I won't make it to the next one. Oh, well there are many more miracles to see.

    I was tired, forgot about the eclipse, and went to bed. Now, I choose to think that it was too cloudy to see the moon. Got to be some excuse for such forgetfulness.

    Thanks for the photos, unfortunately I fell asleep on my chair in front of the TV so I missed it.
