Super Moon!

So... I will start by saying that iPhone is great in general, but for photos of the moon, more specialized equipment might help. Ah, well...

This is the super moon rising. It really was quite large on the horizon when it was first visible.  Very lovely, though the picture doesn't do it justice.
It took another hour and a half before we could really see it eclipsing. It just started to disappear in shadow, the left side darkening gradually. This picture was taken when it was a little more than half shadowed, though the glare makes it look more there than it was. 
Shortly thereafter, clouds covered the sky so I won't get to see the full eclipse but what I saw was pretty cool. And lucky, I suppose... It was cloudy most of the day!
