Because of last year I was so looking forward to finding the right shot again this year.
At the RTR I went out searching for that right spot to take my photo for this years’s eclipse. I found the following spot a couple days before this year’s eclipse.
I even found a backup photo spot the day before.
With my location set, I just needed clear skies.
The sky was cloudy most of the night, as the moon rose over the mountains to the east and well into the night. I got down about it and went to bed at 10 pm to find friends sending texts after I gave up.
In the morning I did get a moon setting picture but it lacked the luster of my plan.
The next night the moon was bright as I headed back to my camper from the main campfire at the QuartzFest (Ham Radio Gathering)
Although I try to find that right picture with my IPhone, and I often get the shot, this year’s eclipse wasn’t meant to be.
Will try again in 2 years for the next Lunar Eclipse
