Dick and I began watching the full lunar eclipse at 3:00 a.m. Eastern/2:00 a.m. Central, which was when it reportedly peaked. I snapped this photo at 3:21 a.m. Eastern/2:21 a.m. Central. We did not see the intense blood-red hue that some witnessed, but this coloration was commonly reported, too.
My meager point and shoot... its limits pushed beyond. But a story it does tell of two people waking from a perfectly good sleep to watch an event. Together. In the quiet of the night.
