Photo on NBC Nightly News

A couple of months ago I posted about how I shot the Blood Moon solar eclipse.  I was just digging through my email inbox today and I found an email from one of the producers at NBC who kindly sent me a link to the new spot that briefly features one of my blood moon photos.

For those that don’t live in the US (that includes me), Nightly News on NBC is currently the highest rated nightly news show with over 9 million viewers every week.  Pretty neat!

In 2015, these two events coincided with each other to produce a “Blood Super Moon”, something which won’t happen again until 2033!

Last Blood Moon Eclipse for 18 years is happening this weekend!

The thing that’s special about this one is that the Blood Moon style of lunar eclipse won’t take place again until 2033!  That’s 18 years away! Lat time this event occurred, I posted a detailed tutorial about how to shoot it and process the results
