Chicago’s ‘blood moon’

Contributing photographer Matthew Ng woke up far before dawn on October 8th to capture Chicago’s second total lunar eclipse of the year, a phenomenon referred to as “blood moon.”

The Chicago Tribune reported, “At 4:18 a.m., the moon slipped into the Earth’s shadow and continued to darken into a total eclipse from 5:27 a.m. until 6:22 a.m. before lightening again toward sunrise, according to the Adler Planetarium, which hosted a viewing party with telescopes and lectures along the lakefront beginning at 3:30 a.m.”

Take a look at Matthew’s sweet shots below.
