The Cold Hearted Orb That Rules the Night

As I was leaving work tonight, I looked up at the sky and saw what was pretty close to a full moon.  It's been a while since I've taken a picture of the moon, so here goes.
It's weird taking a picture of the moon because you have to use what amounts to daylight settings on the camera.  I guess it makes sense since you're taking a picture of something under daylight.  If you don't do that, you get something that looks like a gaseous ball.
And yes, I like the Moody Blues.

Total lunar eclipse tonight. From what I can find, it should start around 1:30 AM and reach totality around 3-3:30. At some point during the eclipse, however, the moon will set, so we won't get to see the whole thing.

There will not be another total lunar eclipse visible from North America until 2018.
