The eclipse was mostly over by the time the Moon rose in Colorado but it still made a spectacular sight as it rose above the snow covered fields at 9200 ft. altitude.

The clouds parted and I was able to capture this beautiful view unfolding before me..... the totally eclipsed Moon rising behind Highland Lighthouse (aka Cape Cod Light) on Cape Cod. Originally built in 1797, I wonder how many eclipses this old lighthouse has seen over the years! What a sight!!!

The cold weather and strong wind made it difficult to enjoy.

In this image you can see the moon in penumbral eclipse (6:16pm MST). You can also see how the full moon is inside the shadow of Earth in the sky.

All meteo forcasts said: Tonight totaly clouded (as for Saturn occultation two days before)and rainy, no way to see eclipse from our region. But somehow, I wake up at two o`clock, saw Moon throught clouds, went to my balcony, quickly set up my tripod and camera, and made some shots. While processing them, again thick clouds, rain and thunders.

I asked my mom if I could take the car to the tallest hill in town and she agreed to let me. When I got there and had just reached the top of the hill, the moon began rising almost instantly! Perfect timing! So, I took some pictures of the ending of the eclipse given that is all that was viewable here in Wyoming. It was a spectacular evening!

I took the first two examples of the eclipse on top of Mount Magazine (the highest point in Arkansas 2700feet) and the main picture from Cove Lake which is just down the mountain.
