Total lunar eclipse or Blood moon as it's also called

For those who missed the full blood or super blood moon as it is also called early this morning you will find some pictures that I took during the early morning hours. The thermometer showed -26'C so the batteries in the camera quickly ran out in the cold but I could take some pictures that I want to share with me.

Everything started past 3 in the morning but in the beginning it was difficult to see anything happen but slowly a dark shadow began to cover the moon. It was only past 5 that you could start to sense a red / orange color with the naked eye and after 6 the moon was completely in shade. Must admit that it was not the clear red color that I expected and the camera's light sensitivity make it look much more clear.
