Here’s one of our favorite photos from an EarthSky community member, so far this year. Jeff Berkes captured it during the recent total eclipse of the moon – September 27, 2015 – and the photo shows the eclipsed moon next to an eruption of Old Faithful geyser in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. Jeff wrote:

Over a year of planning paid off!

Old Faithful, the super Blood Moon fully eclipsed, a meteor, the Andromeda galaxy and the Milky Way… There is a lot going on in this shot!

See the Andromeda galaxy? It’s at about 10 o’clock, above the geyser. The meteor is directly above the geyser.

Awesome photo, Jeff. Thanks for posting at EarthSky Facebook. Check out another photo by Jeff, taken on the same night, below.
