On Sunday, Jan. 20 North America experienced its last total lunar eclipse of the decade.

Despite the freezing cold, millions of Americans looked to the sky to maybe get a glimpse of the moon turned red. Student photographer, junior Mackenzie Jones was one of these people.

“It was cold and windy when the lunar eclipse was occurring and I didn’t want to be outside.” Jones explained, “Being the dedicated photographer I am, I tried to be outside for about 30 minutes at full totality.”

Those who stayed outside long enough were in for quite the show. Sophomore, Claire Lord stood in the cold just long enough to take pictures.

“I didn’t have the proper equipment to actually take high-quality photos,” Lord said. “And the pictures I took could never hold a candle to the real thing.”

Viewing the eclipse was a cold and captivating. Those who braved the freezing temperatures were greatly rewarded by the magical experience.
