First Lunar Eclipse of 2014
These photos were shot in south Baton Rouge on Tuesday morning at 2:45 am. This eclipse marked the beginning of a tetrad, a series of four total lunar eclipses in a row. The next three total eclipses will be occurring on Oct. 8, 2014, April 4, 2015, and the final occurring on Sept. 28, 2015.
The ‘ghosting’ is the rapid movement of the clouds during a 2 second exposure.
Below the moon is Spica, in the constellation Virgo, and Mars is further west(right) in the shots.
I expect to have better photos after the next eclipse… weather permitting. Ha.
