For viewers in the northeastern US, the moon was relatively low in the sky during last night's total eclipse, and scattered cloud and city lights made viewing conditions less than ideal. Still, it was nice to see it. M. and I went down to East River Park and I tried — with varying degrees of success — to capture the moment with my camera. Whether because of haze, or the difficulty of focusing on a dim object in the night sky, or the fact that my tripod is flimsy enough that even a mild breeze will make it tremble during a 20-second exposure, my photos aren't as sharp as I'd like. Still, some of them aren't too bad.
