I stayed in the neighborhood to photograph the eclipse
Lunar eclipse over Wingra Park, Madison. I used a very useful app called The Photographer's Ephemeris to plot the sightlines for the lunar eclipse early this morning. I found a perfect place to photograph it across the lake from Monona, from where it would have appeared to hang blood red over the downtown Madison skyline. But that would have involved driving across town and finding an unfamiliar street with my GPS in the predawn hours when I would be half-awake. In the end, I opted to shoot it in my neighborhood instead.
