Last night we were treated to a beautiful full moon.
And this morning we were up and outside earlier than usual to see the Super Blue Blood Moon and it was worth it!
This rare eclipse combines three separate lunar phenomena: A supermoon, a blue moon and a blood moon.
Now I’m no expert on this so I am just guessing at what stages the moon is at in the following pictures. And my thanks to hubby who took all of today’s shots! I think this first picture is a blue moon, the second full moon in a calendar month, orbiting closer to the Earth than normal, making it seem up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter in the sky.
The following pictures are of the total lunar eclipse.
And then the blood moon, a phenomenon where the moon is in total eclipse and appears reddish in color as it is illuminated by sunlight filtered and refracted by the earth’s atmosphere.
By 7:00 a.m. the sun was starting to come up and we headed back inside to warm up. 🙂
Until next time …
