The Lunar Eclipse!
DISCLAIMER: This is not my photograph! I know you are all expecting me to photograph the Lunar eclipse, but it was way too cold for me to set up my telescope on the tracking mount, which I would need to do in order to take photographs. I am observing the eclipse with a much smaller telescope that is easier to set up and take down quickly. So I decided that I would do a screen grab from the real-time streaming of the eclipse, from the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, California. Thanks to them for this magnificent photograph. It is magical to look through my telescope to see it in real time, and I am going back out to watch it as it changes subtlety over the period of an hour. I wish you could all see this from where you are.
