Pier 7 on the Embarcadero was filled with people this past Sunday night. A blend of San Francisco photographers with their tripods, locals with their kids enjoying the scene and tourists hoping to get a shot of the historic Super Blood Moon.
We had hope. I chatted with a photographer and using our app, The Photographer’s Ephemeris, calculated where the Super Moon would rise over the Bay Bridge. Over time, it was apparent that the rising Super Moon was obscured by the clouds. I kept busy shooting the scenes of the bay as the boats cruised by and the sun set.
Finally, the Blood Moon peeked over the wall of clouds giving us a beautiful moment of the lunar eclipse.
