MOON LOONY

There’s not a lot to like about being at the point in life when one’s body refuses to sleep more than five or six hours without a trip to the loo.

But when I got up at around four-dark-thirty there was an early morning lunar eclipse going on.

I guess this is known as a “Blood Moon” from the reddish shadow caused by the earth’s atmosphere. It’s the same thing that causes a red sunset but it seems more spooky.

When I went for a morning walk a few hours later the moon had turned back to its normal color. Kids on the way to school were unimpressed.

I was the only one getting all loony about the big round thing in the sky.

The rest of the world was just going about their day.

Great photos! I sure wish I could figure out how to take night pictures.
I'm right there with you regarding nightly trips to the loo. :)

That moon was awesome! Beautiful shots. It was big and beautiful again last night, and I pulled off the road for a bit to admire it.

You got some beautiful shots! You must have a good camera...I tried to get some, but they didn't turn out. :( Luckily it all happened at a normal hour hear...6:00 or so.
