Final Super Moon of 2019

This is the third, and final post featuring images captured this past Monday evening as 2018’s first Super Moon rose above a farm grain silo that is near my rural Missouri home.

Dark Side of the Moon

Not Pink Floyd’s famous album (which is one of my all-time favorites), but from Sunday night’s “Super Moon” lunar eclipse. Here are some images I captured of this pretty rare event, from my rural front yard. Here are images that cover the entire eclipse sequence: An interesting night! I had been planning on shooting the […]
