Lunar Eclipse

Eclipse

It was, of course, the lunar eclipse last night. I took some pictures at 5 minute intervals and created an animated gif out of them.

See larger version of animation. 

The first frame was taken at 9:53 PM GMT and the last at 10:33 PM GMT.

Taken using a handheld "point and shoot" Canon camera at 4x optical zoom so the quality isn’t too good, but I still think it’s pretty cool nonetheless.

I’m not sure why but the moon actually appeared blue around 10:18. The animation actually shows the moon becomes yellow, then blue, followed by red. Images were taken on a 1/350 exposure. 

Anyone else go out to see the eclipse?
