Oakdale man captures the 'blood moon'
Rick Fisk of Oakdale captured these images of the rare "blood moon" total lunar eclipse early Tuesday morning, April 15.
"It's the first time I have done anything like this," Fisk says. "It was really amazing to watch, and I had fun photographing it. It was a little cold spending that much time outside last night, but it was worth it."
Total lunar eclipses happen when the moon is totally enveloped by the Earth's shadow. Despite temperatures in the low 20s, people across the Twin Cities stood outdoors in the wee hours of the night Tuesday to watch the eclipse turn the moon into a haunting shade of red.
