Lunar Eclipse 2008

I stayed up late last night watching the lunar eclipse and snapped a few pictures. They are not to bad for a digital camera. Of course they look better in their original size but I had to resize them for the blog.

Thanks guys. I wish I had a better camera with a telephoto lens and all that but I am surprised some of the pictures turned out this well. It was fun watching it too. :-)

You took those pics on your camera? Those are really good! It is so pretty! They almost look fake! Nice!
