MAKE Flickr photo pool member Osbock has some great shots of the eclipse from last night –

Photos of the 2-20-2008 total lunar eclipse. By the time I had finally found my ancient 500mm reflex-nikkor, the eclipse was nearing totality. Also it was very very cold! There were a few wispy coulds which affected the images a little. These were 1 second exposures.

  1. Did anyone else happen to see it with binoculars? With the lighting as it was, the moon popped suddenly into 3D and became a sphere instead of a circle. After a while, once I took down the binoculars, I still saw it as a ball. It was an amazing change. I am sure my brain was incredibly off in my sense of distance and scale, but the effect was mesmerizing.
