One thing that I learned is that it is VERY hard to take a photo at night without a tripod. I have a Nikon Coolpix camera. It is not fancy or expensive, but it usually takes good photos. I held my camera on the top of the dock, downstairs from where I live. It was still hard to keep it totally steady for the half second the shutter would stay open. I joked with my friend Abra that I was not going to stay up and watch it because I knew some crazy nut would stay up for me and post the photos online. I guess that crazy nut was me tonight! Also, I would have taken more photos as the moon re-emerged, but the clouds rolled in, to block the view. It was fun while it lasted I guess.
