Lunar Eclipse early tomorrow morning

Just a reminder that there is an almost total eclipse in the morning. How almost? 99.1%! so the moon should be a deep copper or red color about 4am Eastern Time. It is a slow motion event. The moon will start to seem get a dark bite out of it around 2am, half will be darkened by 3am, and virtually the entire moon will be in the darkest part of the Earths shadow at 4am. Here is a link to a NASA page describing the event …

Update: Here it is from Savannah at 4:03am … 1s exposure @F11, ISO400, Leica SL and Leica Apo-Telyt-R 400mm
