The skies cleared as evening approached. The Moon was aligned with Earth and the Sun. Their syzygy at 9:30 pm CDT brought the Moon into the umbra of the Earth’s shadow. Desktop software gave a simulated view like this. The faint inner circle is the umbra. The larger circle is the penumbra.
My camera was mounted on a tripod and set for capturing images about every 15 minutes starting at 9:30. The images were cropped to place the umbra in nearly the same place in each image. That placement highlighted the movement of the Moon over the 15 minute time periods between photos.
The settings for the first 4 images were all identical. For the 5th image, the Moon was very close to total eclipse and quite darkened. I increased the exposure to be able to see it more clearly. That overexposed the upper right limb of the Moon.
About 10 minutes after the Moon was totally eclipsed, another event got my attention. I zoomed the camera all the way and adjusted the exposure. The Moon’s redness showed nicely. Also in the view were 2 stars. The one nearest the Moon at the bottom was about to be occulted as the Moon moved down and left slowly.
Here is a simulated view of the same scene and time as my image at 10:41 CDT using desktop software. Notice it is actually a double star.
Two minutes later at 10:43 pm CDT, I took another image of the Moon and could not see the double stars any more. They were occulted by the Moon. It is through events such as eclipse and occultation that the dynamic nature of the solar system shows itself.
