There was an eclipse of the moon on Monday night, April 14th. For those who stayed up late to observe it, a black shadow appeared at 11:58 PM and moved across the moon, and became total at 1:07 AM Tuesday morning, Rocky Mountain time. Pinedale Online photographer Dave Bell took this photo of the eclipse at 1:30AM. White dot in lower right is a star. The next lunar eclipse will be October 8th.
Arnold Brokling also sent photographs of the lunar eclipse early Tuesday morning. His photos were taken in five minute intervals without moving or adjusting the camera. "In retrospect, I would have used a ‘wider’ lens and attempted to capture the entire eclipse. What I used moved off the frame in about 40 minutes. Something to try on Oct 8th."
