Well, it's the last day of September.  Autumn is here as we are having cooler temps now which is quite nice.  I stayed up the other night, past my bedtime, watching and photographing the eclipse.  We had a perfect clear sky and who knows what can happen in 18 years when the next one is supposed to occur so I decided I needed to take my chance.  It took me a bit to come up with this compilation of images I got that night.  I was pretty happy with what I was able to capture.  When the moon was fully covered in the middle images I was pleased to be able to capture that and the color of it which everyone is referring to as a "Blood Moon".  Those exposures were done at 3 seconds.  Most of the moon shots were done at 1/250 of a second so as not to blow out the detail in the moon.  This image to see the best detail is best viewed large by clicking on it.  :-)
