Watching the Moon

Last night was that rare event, supermoon + lunar eclipse . It was a must to watch the skies since the next time this will happen again is in 2033. I went to the rooftop of the parking structure on campus to watch the moon. There were several people there who had the same idea. The skies were a bit cloudy, but I was able to see the blood moon during the lunar eclipse. Also, the Chinese holiday, Mid-Autumn Festival, coincides with the supermoon lunar eclipse event. Too bad I wasn’t eating a moon cake while watching the moon.

My attempt at photographing the lunar eclipse with the iPhone. Not the greatest, but the reddish moon is there.

The time lapse video from AP is much better.
