Shot Of The Moon

The moon looked really cool tonight, so I popped on the longest zoom lens I have in the house, the 70-200mm f/2.8L, and fired a few shots off of my balcony. I think it turned out not bad, considering I hand held it. If I had an extender I could probably do an even better job.

Total Lunar Eclipse This Saturday

I’m just gonna jot this here in case anyone is interested in this sort of stuff. On saturday night, there will be a total eclipse of the moon, visible from all seven continents.. Set aside some time this weekend for sky watching. On Saturday night, March 3rd, there’s going to be a total eclipse of the Moon. This means the Moon will glide through the heart of Earth’s shadow and turn a beautiful shade of sunset red. Totality can be seen from parts of all seven continents including all of Europe and Africa and the eastern half of North America. Check out spaceweather.com for more details.
