Total Lunar Eclipse

Well, not the best photo I've ever taken, but it was a stunning eclipse, all the "blood red moon" that we were promised. I think I like taking photos of little things more.

We went up to the park near our house to watch the eclipse tonight. There were a number of people there, which was heartening. I always love it when I realise that being boggled by nature is a passion shared by many. Perhaps people came from other parts of Sydney, since our suburb is on the outskirts and surrounded by bush, rather than city lights.

When we returned home, our neighbours, who manufacture and sell optical telescopes, were out on their driveway with a nicely huge telescope, so we got to see it really close up.
