Get Ready For The Total Lunar Eclipse

On Sunday night the earth will block sunlight from reaching the moon, resulting in a total lunar eclipse. The only sunlight reaching the moon will pass through the earth’s atmosphere, which will cause the moon to appear red in the night sky and giving the phenomenon the nickname of "Blood Moon." Many photographers will flock outdoors at night to capture the phenomenon, which takes some planning and preparation. Below we’ve rounded up a group of articles to help you prepare for successfully photographing this weekend’s lunar eclipse.

On Sunday, May 15, a rare total lunar eclipse or "Blood Moon" will be visible throughout the US. Check out these articles to help you prepare to capture it.
