April 2014 Lunar Eclipse To follow up on my previous post… for Monday night’s eclipse, I was out at my observatory where I had some thin clouds going by, but overall, it was a nice eclipse with   the moon going dark enough to see a lot of stars come out.  During the maximum of the eclipse, the moon had gone so dark that I was having a hard time seeing the marker at the center of my camera which I was using to insure the moon was centered for the shots. At the very end of totality, I was thnking about how quiet the night was.  The usual barking dogs, howling coyotes, and crowing roosters (yes, even at 2:30AM) were all silent, but just as the moon brightened up, an owl’s screech cut through the silence.  Oh, well…
