Yesterday was a busy photography day for sure. First there was the Super Blue Moon eclipse while the moon set at 7:03 AM. Here in New York we saw a small section of the moon eclipsed while it was setting. It did seem more visable the closer it got to the horizon. This makes sense since the Partial umbral eclipse began at 6:48 AM EST.
Here are a few photos of the moon setting. These were taken with my Nikon D750 and the Tamron 150-600 lens from Captree, Long Island, New York.
We were meeting up again for the moon rising by the Fire Island Lighthouse that evening. Moon rise was going to be at 5:32 PM and it wasn’t looking promising at first but then you could see the red glow forming and then the moon started to appear!
Moon rise on January 31st is the 1st of 2 Blue Moons that we will see in 2018. The next one will be coming on March 31st.
There were many photographers at Robert Moses to see the moon rising and luckily it was able to break through the clouds for everyone to see. Here are some photos of the moon rising last night.
