Lunar Eclipse

My attempt to photograph the lunar eclipse. It's not real crisp (but the night was) probably due to the fact that I was using the Subaru as a tripod (quadrapod?) and it was so cold it was hard not to shiver. Maybe I will try when it happens again in 3 years. Maybe it will not be 15 below zero at 2:00 AM on December 21st, 2010... hmmmm, better not count on that.

It was - however cold we got - a wondrous site. You can see how ancients would assign portentous omens to an event like this. Rightly so, I would say.
