After viewing the sunset at the fall equinox last week, I bought into the supermoon lunar eclipse hype and photographed the display last night. Because the eclipse didn’t fully occur until the moon was well up in the sky, I wanted to find some sort of foreground. From our backyard, the interesting chimney atop the neighboring house filled the bill. I showed a flashlight on it during the two-second exposure.
The pros do a lot better. Here just one example: the moon behind the Colorado State Capitol in Denver by Bill Ingalls of NASA.
