Description

My brother and I made a trip to Death Valley in May to photograph the total lunar eclipse. A heavy cloud cover developed right after sunset, but we remained optimistic. The weather apps we were using predicted there would be a break in the clouds around 1:00 a.m., shortly before the start of the eclipse, and that’s exactly what happened. Although there were still heavy clouds all around, a window opened up right where the moon was traversing the night sky. As an added bonus, the fully eclipsed moon revealed a beautiful Milky Way.
