Scott Budnik of Meyers took these photos of the Tuesday morning’s “blood moon”. Even though the moon is in the Earth’s shadow, it appeared red or orange. That’s from light around the edges of the Earth — essentially sunrises and sunsets — splashing on the lunar surface and faintly lighting up the moon, Alan MacRobert, senior editor at Sky & Telescope magazine told the Associated Press.
In the close up, Budnik took the photo about 1 a.m. with his Meade 16-inch Starfinder Telescope. The other photo was taken with Budnik’s 80mm refractor telescope mounted as a lens on his Rebel T3.
