photo coverage: Total Lunar Eclipse of Oct 8, 2014–Philippines

PA085729

Another total lunar eclipse was viewed for this year and this time I was ready to do take photos and observe. But the problem occurs when the weather starts to be cloudy and the moon rises behind the dark clouds. We are expecting a storm and I’m glad that it didn’t rained yesterday, but thick clouds and the air pollution added more hazy effects to view the moon.

I set up my gear at at around 4:30pm just to wait for the moon rise, but as expected, all I see are clouds.
btw, I set up a global adjustment for these photos in order to eliminate the hazy and the grainy effect of the high ISO and also to turn the sky into black.

at 6:39pm , the moon peeks behind the cloud and I used a slow shutter speed to capture the moon and eliminate the hazy effect.

I posted my observation here in my Facebook timeline - https://www.facebook.com/popazrael/posts/10152838796249276

at 6:44pm the moon starts to glow red, it means that the shadow of the Earth starts to cover the entire face of the moon. The white streaks on top left is the remaining light reflected by the sun.
