A full blood moon lunar eclipse is set to take place tonight just past midnight (peak at 1/21/2019 12:16am EST). I’m hopeful that this front over us will disappear by then but it is also bringing along sub-arctic air as it passes.

I looked back at the last time I captured a lunar eclipse over Marblehead – September 27, 2015. I had shared an image from this night with Abbot Hall in the frame but had also captured the view of a red moon surrounded by stars with a borrowed super telephoto lens.

Thought I would share it this morning as a reminder to all who might venture out. If you do, be prepared for frostbite within minutes depending on the timing of this arctic air masses arrival.

If you miss/skip this one, your next chance will by on a hopefully much more comfortable May 28, 2021…
