Silver Lake view of the lunar eclipse

Matt Hartman climbed up on to the roof of his Silver Lake home near Lucile Avenue and Effie Street early this morning to capture images of the total lunar eclipse, the last full eclipse until 2014.  He then created a time-lapsed video of the images shot over three hours, from 3 a.m. until 6:15 a.m. Said Hartman:

There were high clouds so it made the image a bit soft, but you get the idea … man it was cold out!


  1. This is just awesome. Thanks for sharing. I got up a little to late to see the eclipse and drove to the silverlake reservoir/meadow, but couldn’t see it. How do you do time-lapse photography like that? What kind of camera did u use?

  2. Thanks for this effort. In eastern Pasadena, saw the moon slivering but when I looked the eclipse itself appeared to be behind the clouds so not red glow at my house.

  3. Wow! As someone who isn’t up at 6am (for anything!) I thank you for this beautiful time lapse eclipse video, Matt!

  4. Very cool! I totally slept through this!
