61 degrees felt so cold after days of 80’s that I had my winter hat on, but still froze my feet in very short socks and running shoes, legs in short pants, and several jackets kept my chest reasonably warm.
I hung out from 10:45pm-12:30 am. As soon as the eclipse was over, the clouds moved in, and created a huge red circle right around the moon. As the clouds started to dissipate, you could see the four magenta and cyan lights come from the moon, along with a ghost moon that was bright cyan. Very dramatic.
I used a lumex GH4 camera with a zoom 100-300 lens to capture the moon and later the moon with the clouds using a manfroto small video head tripod, 3200-400 iso, f 5.6, from 1/4 sec to 1/25 sec.

Wow! Fabulous. This is amazing! We were just riding home from New York and entering Burlington when I noticed that the unnaturally large full moon was being eclipsed. And then I stood in my front yard and watched it go charcoal gray and then turn marbly orange. Amazing how you could see its roundness! -G.
