Good Friday Eclipse

Neil and I went out at 1:30am last Friday night to attempt to photograph the lunar eclipse. It was really cool just looking at it, but extremely difficult to photograph. The HAZMAT suits are difficult to see in, particularly at night, so focusing was tricky. We have a telescope here, but need more practice at using it for photography. Here’s the best of the photos that Neil took that night:

It was also Good Friday. Zak, Joce, Allen and I watched “Thank You For Smoking”, then Joce, Allen & I did mass. Then we still had hours and hours to wait before the eclipse, so we watched “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” to round off the night.
