Lunar eclipse over the Front Range

Time for another lunar eclipse this morning. A combination of it still being winter in the high mountains, and laziness, meant that unlike last time I stayed close to home. There was a small gathering of onlookers and photographers at the obvious Front Range viewpoint just south of town.

The time lapse version…

It’s possible that I missed the best image. About half an hour before sunrise, the still-eclipsed moon was setting exactly behind the mouth of Eldorado Canyon. A longer lens would have helped here, but I left mine at home!
