Lunar Eclipse

December was a great month if you love astronomy. First the Geminids meteor shower, where I lost count of how many I saw because there were so many! Then the total lunar eclipse on the winter solstice. I stayed up to see it and play with my camera (Nikon D40, it's way smarter than me). Between researching and emailing my photographer friends, I learned(ish) how to take pics of the moon! Something about aperture and shutter speed...
The full moon was much easier than the reddish-eclipsed one. But here are some in case you missed the show. We were very fortunate to have clear skies here in Florida, although it was cold!
