Dallas, TX
Details:
Although this image looks fairly bright, the moon was in complete eclipse and was much dimmer with the naked eye. There was also a thin cloud layer and the image isn't as sharp as I'd hoped for as a result. The white short lines are actually stars in motion since this is a 2 second exposure.
