A Close-Up of the Blood Moon
This remarkably crisp view of the Super Blood Wolf Moon offers a detailed look at the lunar surface. Brian Cummins captured this view from Chantilly, Virginia using an 8-inch Newtonian telescope and a ZWO ASI1600-mm Pro camera cooled to minus 20 degrees Celsius
A Lunar Halo
A halo of scattered moonlight frames the Super Blood Wolf Moon in this composite image of the total lunar eclipse on Jan. 20-21, 2019. Kevin Clarke spotted the lunar halo while photographing the eclipse from his backyard in Fort Collins, Colorado. To capture the faint halo, he took a long-exposure shot of it that made the moon appear too bright, or “blown out,” Clarke said. So, he edited in a different shot of the fully eclipsed blood moon he had taken prior. [Related: Total Lunar Eclipse Gets a Cloudy Halo in Cool Time-Lapse Video]
