Moon in Total Eclipse

The west coast experienced a total eclipse of the moon and I was fortunate enough to capture a few photos between the passing clouds. The pictures may seem a bit out of focus but it is due to the high clouds that obsured the view.

I zoomed back with the telephoto lens and include two stars in the composition. This is as close as I could get to the total eclipse before clouds took over the night sky for about 45 minutes or so.

By the time the big cloud formations cleared the total eclipse took place the the moon started its reappearance.
