Eclipsed moon and Clouds
Photographed by Vic Winter with a 500mm f4 lens
with an exposure of 1/4 second
on Fuji Super G 400 ASA Color Negative film pushed 1/2 of a stop.
Tripod mounted exposure, with wind blocked by my truck.
Very cloudy skies, but a hole opened up and the eclipsed moon popped out for about 5 minutes.
Winds were a steady 35 mph with gusts to 45 mph. Temperature: 42 degrees F.
With the moon well past totality, the last bit of shadow covers a small portion of the moon as
seen in this photo. The moon appeared a very bright yellow at the time to the naked eye.
Photo taken at about 1:50 U.T. April 4, 1996.
Location: Parking area of Powell
35 miles south of Kansas City, USA. (C)1996 Vic Winter.
