11/27 Super Harvest Blood Moon Photos

Last night marked a rare convergence of super moon (moon’s closest approach to the Earth for the year) harvest moon (full moon nearest the fall equinox), and blood moon (a total lunar eclipse). In Seattle we were fortunate enough to have a clear sky to fully appreciate the striking phenomenon. Due to low light, it was nearly impossible to get a clear close up of the blood moon even with a tripod due to the longer shutter speed required and the natural movement of the moon in the zoomed-in static frame. It was much easier to get shots of the super moon after the eclipse, however. Whether you had a chance to see it live or not, hope you enjoy the photos and/or are around to see it the next time it happens in 2033.
