    Blood Moon Progression from Austin, TX


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     joepeartree, a software engineer and board member of the Austin Planetarium, a non-profit organization dedicated to getting a planetarium built in Austin, Texas, considers himself an "amateur astronomer." He took several photos of the moon during different phases of Tuesday's eclipse and combined them into this collage. "The skies here in Austin were very clear, so it was a great opportunity to get some photographs," he said.
