Lunar Eclipse, December 10, 2011 Photos

The last total lunar eclipse of the year has been set to occur last Saturday. On top of that, there won’t be another one in the next three years, so I figured it was an astronomical moment that was simply too good to miss out.

(FYI – As per Wikipedia, a lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes behind the Earth so that the Earth blocks the Sun’s rays from striking the Moon. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned exactly, or very closely so, with the Earth in the middle.)

Photos shot from 9:28 pm to 10:14 pm, Philippine time using the following settings: 135mm focal length, f5.6 – f8,  1/40 – 1/125 seconds, ISO 400 – 1600, Canon 400d.
