If you missed the lunar eclipse Sunday night, September 27, you can see the total lunar eclipse here in one photo. This was a special event. It will not happen again until 2033. The total eclipse coincided with the supermoon or blood moon. This image shows 6 stages from the moonrise with it’s blood red color to 98% eclipsed. Supermoons occur when the moon is closest to the earth making it appear larger and brighter than normal.

I used a 400mm lens which got me close enough to the moon to show detail but allowed enough room to add 5 other moons to one image to show the event from 6:17 PM Sunday (blood moonrise) till about 7:14 (98% eclipsed). Full eclipse was at 7:47 PM.
