The unexpected lunar eclipse

When you travel, you have new experiences. And in this case I saw a partial lunar eclipse when I wanted to shoot the rising full moon. Imagine my surprise ... I'm not complaining ... .

In the beginning ...

Not expecting a lunar eclipse, I initially blamed clouds and haze. But at this point, I doubted that and looked for another explanation. And it turned out, I was at the right time to see a partial lunar eclipse during moonrise. As I often watch eclipses, I am aware of the schedule in California and US west-coast -- but I did not check the astronomy calendar for events happening in the middle of the Atlantic ocean and the Azores. .

Not yet full moon

Living in a valley means, you only get to see the sun or moon after it climbed high enough to peek over the 3000...4500ft tall hills. Only when traveling, do I get to see the actual sun- or moonrise (or setting sun & moon). This was a particularly beautiful occasion and location with nice sailboats, distant clouds and a perfect pink sky. .

Minimal Eclipse Setup

You may have seen my other moon & eclipse setup : www.ipernity.com/doc/stargazer95050/album/607425 This time, I was not prepared. At least I had a 70-300VR lens with me. The shots I got still were very good and more importantly, I had a good time and met new friends also enjoying the view. .
