Blood Moon

Well, I didn’t get to see it. Even though I was prepared for it. Woke up, or rather, didn’t sleep the whole night, (insomnia) because I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to see the blood moon. I got out of the house at 6:30 in the morning, with my camera, and looked for the red moon. I have to say, that not only did I not see the blood moon, I didn’t even see a regular moon, period! I think it was on the other side of the house. But how could it be? The previous night it was right smack dab in the middle of the sky just above my drive way. the sky was clear, and there was no moon. The sun was beginning to rise in the east. I should have taken some pictures of the rising sun. Instead, I went to bed and sulked.

But, the next night, I saw the full moon, and it was gorgeous. Here are some pictures of the moonscapes taken from my driveway.  Looks good, no?

      That was not the problem here. The sky was clear, Ruth, and I couldn’t see the moon. Perhaps I should have done a one eighty around the house!

  2. Aw, I’m sorry you missed it and felt sulky. 😦
    Excellent photos of the full moon, SweetZ!!! 🙂
    I didn’t see the blood moon this time around…but I’ve seen it before and am fascinated by it! 🙂 The color is absolutely amazing! 🙂
    I are an insomniac, too. And I take a late night walk every night just to enjoy the moon and stars and night air. I like feeling like I’m the only one in the world that is awake. Hmm….but, now I know you might be awake, too! 😉
    HUGS!!! 🙂
