These images of the partial lunar eclipse were taken in the early morning hours of October 8th, 2014.  The first image I took about midnight showing the extreme cloud cover.

The second image was taken at 4:30am GMT -6.  The eclipse was already in progess.

The third image was taken at 6:00am clearly showing the 'Blood Moon Eclipse.'  This image was acquired with a Canon 450D, a 55-250mm lens set at 250mm, F/5.6, ISO800, exposure time 1/800th sec.

The last image was taken at 6:35am on my route to work.  It shows the extent of totality quite well.  Nearly a total eclipse.
