Lunar Eclipse at 4:03am

Call me crazy but I felt compelled to set an alarm and wake up at 3am to capture the Lunar Eclipse.  A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes behind the Earth so that the Earth blocks the Sun’s rays from striking the Moon.  I stood out on my driveway from 3am until a little after 4am to watch it unfold.  Viewing it live was amazing and capturing the phases of the eclipse was even better!
