Lake Umbagog, Maine, is beautiful. The biggest reason for me was to see the full lunar eclipse in a dark sky without light pollution. Come Saturday, the prospect of seeing the full Lunar Eclipse was grim with rain and clouds, but sometimes things just work out.
The rain stopped around 10, then clouds parted to show the moon slowly getting encompassed in shadow. 6 minutes before the last sliver of the Sun’s gaze was gone, clouds rolled in to block the spectacle. We waited patiently. About an hour in, more than half way through the event, the red tinge appeared. I had 1 minute 30 seconds, and three pictures of the Blood Moon before it was gone for the night, but I would say it was worth the patience.
