Missed it by that much
The problem with trying to photograph a lunar eclipse in a rainforest is rain. And forest. Technically, that’s two problems, but either one is enough to foil the attempt. Here’s the moon an hour before the eclipse. That was the last I saw of it until about 2 a.m., when I went to bed. By that time, storm, moon and planetary shadow had all moved on and the moonlight was so bright I could count the leaves on the Mallotus tree by the window.
