Partial eclipse of the Snow Moon

Partial lunar eclipse

Tonight we had a partial eclipse of the Snow Moon. A Snow Moon is a full moon in February. This year (2017) we had a Snow Moon, partial lunar eclipse and a comet  (not pictured) all at the same time.

I took this photo, with a local streetlight in the foreground, tonight shortly after moonrise.
