In Shanghai we are located on a river delta and a sea. Most days are cloudy or very humid/damp depending on season. This leads to few clear days. Odds were stacked against us to view the eclipse and blood moon that would be visible October 8th. Fingers crossed and dreaming of a clear sky I peeked out before dusk to see low laying clouds. Looked like the special event would be lost.
Once it got dark and at the required time (6:55 PM local time) I went out to look at the moon. Nothing. The moon was not in the usual southerly location. Darn clouds… As I turned to go back inside something caught my eye and low and behold it was a bright orange disk in the Eastern portion of the sky.
I raced back inside to grab the camera and captured a few shots of the orange moon from our 14th floor balcony. Every 15 minutes or so, I went back out to watch as things transitioned from the full orange moon to the eclipse. I hope you enjoy. Despite using a tripod, night setting and full zoom many shots came out with some blur. These are a sample of the best shots.
We dream about many things for the future, our lives and for our friends and family. Some pictures have a dreamy atmosphere. Sometimes dreams are simple like doing something well or capturing a spectacular eclipse 😉 . who knows if I will every get to witness such an event again.
