Pursuit of Happy: Blood Moon

The past few nights I've awaken promptly at 2:30am out of a sound sleep. It's been annoying, to say the least and last night was no different. The only upside to my 2:30 wake-up call was the fact that I was just in time for the moon's big show last night.

Watching the bright light fade away and take on a warm, burning glow was creepy. All I had on hand at the time was a 50mm but I was able to crop tight enough to actually see some the burnt orange/red cast.

Did anyone else wake up early to watch the show?  

PS - that bright dot to the far right of the moon is Mars!
