Moon struck: Last week’s lunar eclipse

BRH_3143Wrangler News photographer Billy Hardiman, whose previous
foray into celestial photography focused on last summer’s
Perseus meteor shower, ventured forth once again for the
recent midnight showing of a spectacular Blood Moon, so named
because of its blood-red hue.
If you missed it, not to worry: the same meterologic
phenomenon will be visible again on Oct. 8 and twice more next
year. The reddish tint is a result of refraction caused by the
Earth’s atmosphere. The photo was taken using a 600 mm lens
with a 1-second exposure at f/6.3 and ISO 4000.
