And you were on the Central or South side of town away from the Mill, or maybe even at the lake or on the Hump.
The moon did make some very brief sneaky appearances at the last minute!
These photos certainly aren’t anything like you’ll see from a telescope… but at least they’re proof small celestial miracles can happen in December in Port Alberni. 🙂
A few minutes after totality, the red sky is from the city, but this was the brightest I saw of the moon, still not clear enough for me to focus the camera on it though.
This was a few minutes later, less exposure, so less red fog but can see the red in the moon better.
