Super Blue Blood Moon in Texas

A rare celestial occurrence, called a Super Blue Blood Moon happened today. It means that a super moon (when the moon is closer to Earth and looks a little bigger), a blue moon (a second full moon in a calendar month) and a blood moon (a total lunar eclipse) were all coincide. The phenomenon was visible in large parts of North America, best on the western parts of the continent. In Texas, the totality occurred when the moon was setting and the sun was rising, so it wasn’t as spectacular as the total eclipse in Hawaii in 2014, however, I believe it was worth taking a photograph. I set up my equipment in the early morning on our balcony in Houston and created several images and in one of them I was lucky to catch an airplane too against the moon.

Gear: Canon EOS 7D, Canon 300mm F/4 lens, Canon 1.4x extender, Manfrotto tripod
