The first two pictures are photographs of the moon in the couple days leading up to the eclipse, right around sundown. The photographs below are a collective progression of the most recent lunar eclipse from around 3:50 am to 5:15 am.
I will make one note about the behavior of the wildlife during this eclipse. It is my experience that during each eclipse i have witnessed the birds, the toads, and the insects go silent when the moon is in complete shadow. This eclipse was no different. As soon as the moon was in complete shadow the yard fell into total darkness and all the crickets quit their song. It was eerily quiet and windless.
The eclipse ended with a stunning blood moon.
Witnessing an eclipse is such a magical experience. ~
