Blood Moon over McCormick

 

Skip Kask sent in this photo of the lunar eclipse of Jan. 20-21. The term “blood moon” refers to the coppery color the moon takes on during this type of eclipse. Below, Skip explains the process of producing this photo:

 “I went out last night to photograph the blood moon over McCormick. Though it is described a super moon, it was still quite small. Furthermore, it was straight overhead, making getting any earth objects in the image difficult if not impossible. So, I took some photographic license and combined two images. The Depot, I took with a wide angle lens so I could get close in order to leave out distractions, and a second was taken with a telephoto lens to capture the moon.”
