I’m really not happy with most of the photos of the Hovenweep lunar eclipse. I tried to catch the landscape with the moon and that put things too far way. Not to mention the ISO may have been set too high and the photos are grainy.
The moon was already starting to eclipse when it came up over the horizon. I took photos every five minutes but won’t bore you with the entire series. The September 28, 2015 Total Lunar Eclipse is the fourth and final eclipse in a series of four total lunar eclipses called the lunar tetrad. The first three eclipses of the tetrad took place on April 15, 2014, October 8, 2014 and April 4, 2015. Total eclipses of Super Full Moons are rare and the next won’t happen again for another 18 years, until October 8, 2033.
I wandered back to earlier times when the People living at Hovenweep must have wondered what this disappearing blood moon meant.
