It's the "Super-Blood-Wolf-Moon" in full eclipse. I had originally planned to shoot with a group but it was cancelled due to rain being predicted. I set up my tripod on my front deck and kept checking to see if it popped out of the clouds. It did and I had a heck of a time with the exposure and focus. I had to use a very high ISO since it was so dark, thus there's a lot of noise. I managed to shoot a few shots and then the rain started up pretty good so I threw a raincoat over my camera and came into the house.
