I Got Lucky This Morning

Super, Blue, Blood Moon!



So Cool!

I happened to wake up early this morning around 5:30am. I looked out the window and saw that it snowed. When I glanced up I noticed a 3/4 moon. How odd, it was supposed to be full today, perhaps it’s clouds from the snow storm but it was too clean. Then I remembered the eclipse!

I grabbed my camera to photograph this rare lunar event. It took several tries but scroll down to see what I got. I really need to learn more about photographing the moon – lol.

Anyway, they’re calling it “A Super, Blue, Blood Moon”.

Super Moon because the moon is at it’s closest point to the earth in it’s orbit.

Blue Moon because it’s the second full moon in January of 2018

Blood Moon because of the particular angle of the lunar eclipse with regard to the sun, moon, earth lineup causing it to appear red.

I’ve decided it’s a lucky sign.


The last time a total lunar eclipse coincided with a blue moon in the United States was in March 1866 which was less than a year after the Civil War ended.
