Lunar eclipse photographed by coastal photographer Mel Gerst

Many coastal residents were up early on the morning of Dec. 10th to witness a total eclipse of the moon. Skies were clear. Every once in a while a meteor from the beginning of the Geminids meteor showers streaked across the sky. The lunar eclipse was a spectacular show. Mel Gerst photographed this event in front of The Sea Ranch Lodge.

The photo below was taken at 5:23 AM.

 This next one was taken at 6:04, two minutes shy of totality

 And the eclipse photographed at 6:43 AM

 This last one was taken just before 7 AM. The bright light is a fishing boat.

Thanks to Mel Gerst for allowing me to show his photos here!
