The Night Sky

In the Oregon Cascades in the summer, all too often we see the "fire moon" where the colors in the night sky are filtered by smoke.  The second picture is a normal moonrise.  The first is interesting, but I prefer the second as it indicates that we can breathe.969318514_OregonFireMoon.thumb.jpg.5fad556c616512278499146a0343f320.jpgMoonrise.thumb.jpg.80715bf3495c35053d8309aedc2b2947.jpg

Finally saw my first total lunar eclipse last night! The northeast hasn't really been lucky in terms of eclipses. Or we are able to see an eclipse, but there are clouds.

Yeah, it was really cloudy here so I missed it.

I spotted the Strawberry Moon rising over the trees last night so I grabbed the camera, which was sitting right there beside me. I cranked and cranked the shutter speed down until it gave me a decent exposure and started taking hand held shots at 1/30's shutter speed. If I get the chance tonight I will try again with the tripod stabilizing things so that I can try lowering my ISO below 3200.
