This was really a challenge...It was brutally cold tonight at -3 F and my battery in the camera kept freezing up on me...I brought the camera back in to get warmed up and then went out again and laid down on my back to shoot up to the sky and that didn't pan out either as the camera wasn't focusing and making grinding noises because of the cold weather...I went back to the house again and got the battery and myself warmed up ..This time I set the camera on a tripod and knelt down on one knee while pointing the camera upward and this is the result...I wish it could be a tad sharper, but at close to midnight this was the best I could do considering the freezing weather. It was a fun experience in spite of the obstacles.

An interesting thing happened while I was outside...Although I didn't hear wolves howling at the moon I did hear a pack of coyotes in the woods, and it sounded like they were singing in tune to the moon:-)

    Beautiful tones and detail in this very unique capture, Andrea! Well done! I'm sure the coyotes knew this was a special moon, too :) I got a couple of shots through the mist before the eclipse started and then it clouded over completely..

    Thank you all for your comments..I heard that the next super blood wolf moon won't be until
    2021 in the United States. I almost gave up on this project as my fingers were freezing through my gloves but I am glad I went out one more time...When the camera was focusing on this shot it went totally black while it was processing and I wasn't sure at first that it had even recorded but I am thankful that i used a tripod on this last effort which held the camera steady when using a slow shutter speed that was selected.

    Excellent image; You captured the heart of the lunar eclipse. Considering the weather and mechanical problems you had to cope with, it is amazing that you were able to capture any image at all. Great work.

    Terrific, Andrea! Such a fascinating capture and narrative.
