Lunar Eclipse

February 21, 2008

The pictures below are my attempts at taking a picture of the lunar eclipse tonight. Notice, I didn’t use my tripod. Yes, I know it’s a necessity when taking photos of the night sky, however…I couldn’t find mine. The only room in the house I didn’t look in was Raleigh’s room because he was sleeping.

The squiggly areas of brightness forming a triangle with the moon are Saturn and the bright star Regulus ( I didn’t realize that Harry Potter’s godfather’s brother was named after a star).
