Lunar Eclipse

8 hour exposure; Full Moon emerging from Total Eclipse
Moab, Utah
 

This Lunar Eclipse occurred in September 2007. 
Though the weather prediction was for partly cloudy skies, I spent the night out anyway, and conditions were perfect.  The eclipse occurred early in the morning (~4am), which meant the sun would rise before the moon would set.  Terminating the exposure around 6:30 am stopped the Moontrack in the sky, and the eclipse itself created the "comet tail" trailing out behind.
