"Blood Moon" Lunar Eclipse over Oakland

Early this morning I was able to glimpse the "Blood Moon" Lunar eclipse event in the skies of Oakland.  It was quite a site to behold.
 For most of the night, esp. as the full eclipse was about to start, it looked like the low clouds and fog would eclipse our view of the celestial event.
 But the clouds broke up just enough for me to take these clear shots of the eclipse.
As the moon started to emerge from the Earth's shadow around 1:30 am I took a few last shots and went to bed.

After all I had to file my photos early in the morning to go up on the SF Gate! :)
