Total Lunar Eclipse Event at Tyler State Park, Sunday, September 27th

Many of us met along “Main Park Road” at the Play Field parking lot at Tyler State Park. The Lunar Eclipse played out over the course of several hours with a gradual darkening of the Moon starting around 9 PM and a coppery color full eclipse phase beginning a little after 10 PM till 11:20 PM, then the process reversed as Earth’s shadow slid off the Moon bringing back the full illumination. Even though skies were partially overcast, we managed to view many of the phases of the eclipse. Additionally, many were able to capture wonderful photographs, once again demonstrating the enhanced “seeing” of the camera over the eye, especially under adverse conditions.
