Moon shots


All I got when I stuck my head outside late Monday was a face full of raindrops, dagnabit. I was hoping to get a glimpse of the total lunar eclipse, but I’ll have to settle for surfing the World Wide Web to see what I missed.

Here's a collection of links to see how photographers and videographers across the country captured the astronomical event:

Watch a stunning video composed of a series of still photos shot in Gainesville, Fla., by William Castleman. He condensed four hours of activity into a two-minute video. Music accompanying the eclipse images is Claude Debussy's "Nocturnes — Sirènes" from “La Mer.” (Video is on the Geekosystem.com and is hosted by Vimeo):

I hoping for clear skies the next time there's and eclipse, meteor shower or other show in the night sky.
