#268 Shooting the moon

Line up the sun, earth, and moon in that order and if you're the moon, you're in a spot where the sun don't shine.

Last night it happened.
The moon took on an odd reddish glow for 51 minutes as it passed through the Earth's dark shadow. Eighty nine photos later in 20-degree weather, my fingers took on an odd reddish glow as I punched through every advanced camera-setting combination.

Oh, and don't bother looking for your camera's "Eclipse" button. It doesn't have one. Listen up camera manufacturers. Only 1034 days until the next total eclipse.

Go ahead. Shoot the moon.

Yours in anticipation,
