This is the beginning of the Penumbral eclipse at 1:17 AM
|1:17 AM ISO 200 f14 1/200|
I photographed the moon every 5 minutes, and didn't see any appreciable difference until 2:02 AM. I don't know if the very thin layer of clouds blocked what was going on, or I just couldn't see anything...

It was also around this time when the nocturnal animals started making lots of noise. Especially the very loud owl who had a lot to say....

More people stared showing up to my spot. I wondered what took them so long....

The maximum eclipse was at 3:55AM. My shots all contained a large amount of camera shake, they look very similar to the photo I took at 3:46AM, so all is well. I couldn't stay up anymore! I hope all the people who stayed up had a great show!
Neither could Joel!!
We headed home a little after 4AM....
