The other day people in western North America were lucky to see the Lunar Eclipse, well people in eastern North America too, and northern Europe too of course. The western side had the privileges to have this happening in the evening/late night. I was up waiting for it and took a couple of cool pictures of it.
It started around 9pm or so, and continued till almost 3 in the morning here in Alaska. I took a pretty picture of the moon behind some branches, plying around a bit before actually focusing on the eclipse.

After that I went to bed. There will be 3 more opportunities the coming year. So if you missed it this time, you still have a chance. If you miss it any of the coming opportunities I think you have to wait until 2032 or something like that.

I currently live in Fairbanks, Alaska, and have lived here since August 2009. In this blog I will share my photographs from my life here, and of course stories about life in general in Alaska. So if you are as enthusiastic about an active outdoor life and love nature and photography as much as I do, you will probably like it.
Here you can follow me and my adventures, enjoy.
