Something Quite Extraordinary
For the most beautiful hour or so, the quiet aurora conditions didn’t matter, the clouds closing the clear sky gap from the northwest didn’t matter. It was just us and a total lunar eclipse, and it was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. Aided, of course, by a pair of tripod mounted astonomy binoculars.
But raise your hand if you forgot your telephoto lens at home tonight..
Right here, thank you.
So the iPhone through the binocular lenses had to cut it, which was fine. It’s good to just enjoy as well.
And then for the rest of the night as the moon lit the landscape once again, we chased clear skies up and down the Ingraham Trail, but these are sure quiet days under the aurora, not helped by a full moon.
