Lunar Eclipse

The total lunar eclipse early Wednesday, Oct. 8, just before sunrise.

The moon appeared coppery red, called a "blood" moon, because of the sunsets and sunrises  reflecting on the lunar surface. During the eclipse, although it's in the shadow of Earth, a bit of reddish sunlight still reaches the moon.

RCC photojournalism students (and one commercial student) headed out into the darkness to photograph the event. The series above was from 5:15am till total eclipse around 6:18am when clouds covered the moon.

Photojournalism 1 - Soccer. Photo by Josh Komer

This week the photojournalism class photographed soccer for the first time as a sports assignment.  Josh did a great job capturing the action of soccer: action, body language, expression, and a clean background all made this image pop!
