Wow! Looks like that golf ball that the first men on the moon launched is still in orbit. Zero G's got to slow the game some. Note to self: when playing the Sea of Tranquility course, coat the ball in velcro. . . and mind the sand trap.

That's a really great photo! Such detail! What time was it? Did you catch it just above the horizon when it was magnified by the atmosphere to begin with? Or would that have caused distortion in a slow shutter speed? Use a telescope or binoculars or a really big zoom?

Very cool.

That is so funny. LOL

I'm in Los Angeles and took the pic with a Canon 60D and a 70-200 2.8L. Time was 12:23:22 AM. We were starting to get some clouds and in fact it was difficult to see the "red moon" so I went back inside.
