Plenty of late-night stargazing occurred around Hawaii Monday night. People craned their necks to see the lunar eclipse.
It was a little cloudy throughout the state, but some cool images were shared from some pros on the Big Island.
One photo showed the Blood Moon, a rare copper illumination set against the dark night sky.
Photographer Ethan Tweedie captured some shots from Waimea, including one of the moon with a bright star in the distance.
"I'm just trying to think of something that would be interesting for my own self. I took a timer, so it's like a 10-second delay. I just bolted out in front of the camera, and was lined up with the moon and I just stood there for 30 seconds," said Ethan.
That shot is now lighting up Facebook with so many commenting on his creativity.
Andrew Hara also captured the skies Monday night with a breathtaking view from the summit of Mauna Kea.
"One of the beauties of Mauna Kea is that the sky is so clear up there that you're able to see parts of the sky that you're never able to see anywhere else in the world almost," said Andrew.
Both photographers tell us that experiences like the lunar eclipse make them thankful to call Hawaii home.
"It's about being proud of our islands, about being able to say, 'Yes we live on the Big Island and look how beautiful it is,'" said Andrew.
"It's just surreal really. There's not too many places in the world that would be like that," said Ethan.
