Default Moon Eclipse

The moon had a full eclipse on Saturday morning. Not great shots, but was interesting to watch. Needed a much longer lens, but for what it's worth this is what I got with an 18-250. Instead of disappearing like the sun in a solar eclipse, the moon turns orange. Hopefully, someone else did better.

At least you had a sighting, here in Melbourne Aust there were storm clouds overhead so no sight at all, maybe next time.

The eclipse was not visible on the East coast, thanks for showing it. Nice images from the 18-250 and your capable hands.

I got up early enough to look for it. The moon was completely covered but low enough that I could only see it from the upstairs window (too many trees). I had originally considered getting up at 4 and hiking up to the top of Pinos to watch the eclipse and the sun rise, but it was a bit cloudy and we were going in search of clam chowder Saturday morning so I didn't bother. The sky was already bluish, not dark like in your pictures when I saw it. In fact, it was fairly hard to see at all, figured it wouldn't photograph well. Your pictures are very nice!
