Blood Moon

16 Apr

Two nights ago, I set an alarm and got up at 2:30 because there was supposed to be a “blood moon”.  I was not disappointed!  Putting on my snow boots and coat and trusty fingerless gloves, I grabbed my camera and tripod and went out.  The moon was fascinating, a true reddish-orange, and rather dim, but quite dramatic!

The orange color of the moon in the photos is accurate.  It was stunning!  Be sure to enlarge the photos, because you’ll see stars too!

Enjoy, and thanks for looking. 🙂

    Awesome! I had to miss it, it wasn’t quite visible from our part of the globe…

      Thanks so much, Jana. I would have forgotten all about it if they hadn’t mentioned it on the news that night. 🙂

      Thanks very much, Jocelyne! It was quite a sight, and well worth getting up in the night to photograph. 🙂
