Lunar Eclipse

Up at 4:15 to see lunar eclipse,

Had difficulty getting camera to work in the dark,

   Kept pressing wrong buttons.

   Took several photos then the camera battery

   became exhausted; helped by cold I think.

   My backup battery had not been properly

   recharged and died before I took one photo.

   I put the battery in the charger

   tried to take iPhone photos but did not work.

   Spent time just watching and trying to

   sort out some constellations.

   I knew Orion,  Cassiopeia, the two Dippers

   and Gemini

   and was able to pick up Taurus and Perseus

   for the first time in a long time 

   as well as Leo.

Coyotes singing close by at 4:50 a.m.

Got a last moon photo with the recharged battery.
