Skywatch Friday – The Super Moon Lunar Eclipse


An almost full moon. I took the photo on Tuesday night so this is actually waxing gibbous at 98%. But hey, it is full enough for me.

Then this is the following morning. I got up and went out to get the paper at about 5:30 am and I had to run back in and get my camera and then I had to go across the street and stand in my neighbors yard to get away from the trees. Yes, that is part of the eclipse I didn’t hold my finger in front of the lens to fake it.

And this is Wednesday night’s moon. Yes, I used a Topaz filter on it to jack it up a little. Jacking up is a technical term here in Oklahoma. Do you jack things up where you live?

And this is my favorite Wednesday night moon. Yes, another Topaz filter. I love messing with photos.


I’m taking a photography class and one of our assignments to get a photo of a flag in manual mode. Being the apple polisher that I am I got a bunch of flags flying in a good stiff Oklahoma breeze.

What about you? What have you been looking at?

    Like you, I like “messing with Sasquatch” or “Fun with filters” as I like to call it. I took a few images Tuesday night and a few more tonight. A little bit of overcast sky and poor location kept me from trying to capture the eclipse .

    I hoped I’d see some good photos of the moon on SWF today — you are the first I visited. Great pictures — thank you for them and for hosting.

    Extra credit for the extra flags I’m sure!!

    Hello, gorgeous captures of the super moon. We missed the eclipse here, we are too far east. Pretty shot of the flags and sky! Enjoy your day and weekend!

    Wow! Great captures of the super moon! We got to see the super moon here too. Very bright, clear and big but too bad, I can’t capture it with my mobile phone camera. Just enjoy it with my naked eyes. Thank you for hosting and have a great day!

    Super super moon pics! I’m not much of a messer other than cropping and taking down the level if I’ve photographed into the light. Minimal skills – I could do with some classes.
