People watching the night skies over much of the world were treated to a “super blood moon,” a rare total lunar eclipse yesterday. Photographers and astronomers, hobbyists and professionals alike, came out to witness and capture the event. California’s Capitol building in downtown Sacramento provided a backdrop for images and attracted skywatchers from the region.
Local photographer and amateur astronomer Greg Cleghorne checked a chart to see where the moon would be in the sky and set up a camera on the Capitol Mall in downtown Sacramento. He captured video for a timelapse of the rare event. Andrew Nixon / Capital Public Radio
