Not the Lunar Eclipse
This was a test image I captured of the full moon during dusk on 27 July, 2018. Early the next morning, a total lunar eclipse was to take place.
Unfortunately, I only caught a few glimpses of the red moon, as the rare celestial event was again ruined by the presence of clouds, despite several cloudless dawns preceding it.
The focal length of this image is actually 1,120mm (not 800mm as recorded in the EXIF data), as I stacked both my 2x tele-converter and 1.4x tele-converter on my 400mm lens.
