... BTW, I watched the waning and waxing process almost from start to finish the other night (intermittently of course), but didn't observe the blood (orange) color of the full moon that much.
At the beginning, I didn’t observe the reddish color either; however, I started to notice “iron oxide” color near the mid totality, especially towards the bottom rim area of the Moon. The red shade appears more obvious on photos I took with a digital camera without long zoom lens.
I guess I didn't wait long enough then. Mid-totality of the waxing process is about when I gave up. I figured the moon was just gonna get bigger and bigger until it was full again, without much change in color.
Here's an animation of the eclipse process that night. I gave up looking around 8:50pm PDT, which is around 10:50 CDT. Perhaps I should have been a little more patient.
Thanks for the wonderful pics and YouTube links, QHE.
I especially liked the violin concerto of《我的祖国》accompanied by the illustration of some nice images. The activity between time 5:08 and 5:28 puzzled me a bit 'cause I've never seen it before. I had a hunch though that it had something to do with barley.
