I first learned about the most recent total lunar eclipse yesterday afternoon while watching the repeats on Cable Channel 9 (WAFB). Weatherman Jeff Morrow told us that the skies should be clear, save for the usual fog that would appear at around 6pm locally. Luckily, I was able to go out this morning and snap a few photos with my Canon Rebel T3i. I took the photos with my 75-300mm zoom lens, manually focused with a shutter speed of five seconds at around 100 ISO, for the most part. These pictures span from 5:51 to 6:05am Central Time. Evident by the glow of the street lights, the fog began to take over right around 5:55am when the eclipse peaked.
Similarly, read about my visit to the Highland Road Park Observatory, a local treasure that hosted an event for today’s spectacle.
Check out my first forays into the Baton Rouge media market — I designed the new virtual set for ‘MyScene TV,’ a local lifestyle show airing Thursdays at 11:30pm on WBHX 16. In addition, I am producing segments for ‘BRCC Today,’ a program airing Fridays at 5pm on Metro21.
