I managed to pull myself away from the hockey game (we won!) for about an hour to get some nice pictures of the full lunar eclipse. That’s right, even hockey couldn’t keep me away.

This picture is taken using a tripod from the front porch of my house, conveniently in a no-streetlight zone. The moon was so beautiful it was hard NOT to get a good picture.

For those that don’t know, the moon goes red like this during an eclipse because even though there is no direct sunlight on its surface, there is still refracted light from the atmosphere.
