Tonight's lunar eclipse was impressive.  I think I saw a full lunar eclipse when I was a boy but I don't remember it well.  This time I saw the moon with the full shadow of the Earth upon its face.  As I had heard, the light around the Earth's atmosphere cast a blood-led glow on the moon, giving it an eerie quality.  I managed a couple of photos despite not having a handy tripod.
