Noted Guntersville photographer Bob Blankenship got a beautiful photo of the moon during the lunar eclipse early last Friday morning.
He said he debated whether to pursue it since he needed to get up at 2:30 in the morning to make it happening.
"With the warm weather we had been having, I decided to give it a try," Bob said. "The alarm went off that morning and the outside temperature had dropped to a chilly 37° but I got up anyway and put on my 'Cousin Eddie' hat, a heavy coat and wrapped myself in a blanket opened the door and I headed out onto the deck.
"It was cold and had trouble with the camera's auto focus system not wanting to focus on the moon so I switched to manual focus and was able to get this one."
The resulting image is what you see here.
