    In my area, SE USA, the longest lunar eclipse in 588 years happened between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. Although it was quite chilly, I sat up my tripod and camera near my car so I could get in and out between shots and thaw out a bit.

    This was not a total eclipse. However, at maximum it was 97.4%.

    The entire start to completion was longer than this. But, my intention was to only stay until it reached maximum. I also had to be at work by 7:30 a.m. :)

    These two shots I'm posting are once the moon became reddish, and then at the point of maximum eclipse. I also have had to reduce the size of the image in order to upload them here.
