This Photo Shows the Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse Rising in Texas
Photographer Jason Weingart shot this beautiful composite photo of the super blood wolf moon total lunar eclipse on January 20th and 21st. The image features six stages of the moon that night as it rose from the horizon and became totally eclipsed.
“I shot the barn at 105mm to give a compressed effect and eliminate some trees on both sides of it,” Weingart tells PetaPixel. “I shot the progression of the moon through the night at 250mm.
“I went back out every half hour, to give myself a good selection of moon images. I grabbed a shot of stars to the west, so I would have a good clean sky, although I probably could have used the stars around the peak eclipse. It got really dark!

Lunar eclipse 2019: super blood wolf moon – in pictures | World news | The Guardian
"Thousands of stargazers have battled sub-freezing temperatures to catch a glimpse of a lunar extravaganza known as a super blood wolf moon.

The rare celestial event takes places when the moon is positioned slightly closer to the Earth than normal, and appears slightly bigger and brighter than normal – a phenomenon called a super moon. During the total eclipse, the moon was expected to give off a coppery red glow on the lunar surface as it slips into Earth’s shadow, known as a blood moon.

Since it appears in January, when wolves used to howl in hunger outside villages, it earned the name wolf moon, according to The Farmers Almanac.

The entire eclipse was visible from Britain, North and South America, and western and northern Europe. (...)"
