Lunar Eclipse

October 8, 2014,  Lunar Eclipse (partial phase)
shot from the campus of Oakwood University.
This image was shot through a thin layer of clouds

     I was up early this morning to photograph the total lunar eclipse, but the weather was not very cooperative.   I arrived on the campus of Oakwood University, (where I teach) where I shot this image.  The weather was very cloudy at my house, but was supposed to be better further west.  When I arrived on campus the sky was much better. However, soon after taking this image, the sky worsened, and the remainder of the eclipse was obscured by clouds.    Perhaps I will have better luck in April, 2015
