Lunar Eclipse

An eclipse of the moon reached totality during my night class at the community college. My students temporarily dropped their studies to go outside and appreciate the wonder of this rather rare event. Having planned ahead, I brought my tripod and photographed the eclipse as well as my camera would allow. After experimenting with various settings, I finally stopped taking pictures and just stood to watch. The craters of the moon were hauntingly beautiful under a blood red glow. The eclipse inspired me to offer thanks to the moon for her constant watchfulness over the world.
