Total Lunar Eclipse this Tuesday!! (April 15th)

In just a few days, the first total eclipse of the moon to be visible across the whole of North America since December of 2010 will occur. But to make the most of your moon-watching experience, there are some tips to keep in mind.

The first total lunar eclipse of 2014 will occur in the overnight hours next Monday and Tuesday (April 14 and 15), peaking at about 3 a.m. EDT (0600 GMT) on Tuesday. Weather permitting, the moon event could be a striking lunar sight.

Below are my feeble attempts at photographing a lunar eclipse back in 2008... It isn't easy! The moon has most of its light blocked by earth, so it's really dull... If you slow down your shutter speed - you end up with a blurry moon!

My camera has much greater abilities in low light than my version in 2008, so I may have to give this one another try. Here's hoping for clear skies!!!
