A Minor Marvel

The name sounds comically ominous: “Super blood wolf moon.” But the astrological spectacle — a type of total lunar eclipse that turns the moon reddish — amounted to a minor marvel. People were ready with cameras, Glenn Asakawa (Jour’86), CU’s chief photographer, among them. He took these images between 9:08 and 11:04 p.m. in Lafayette, Colo., using a tripod-mounted Lumix G9 micro four-thirds camera with Panasonic/Leica 100-400 zoom lens. You don’t have to know much about cameras or moons to be impressed by the results.
