“Go out every 10 to 15 minutes and you’ll watch the moon get, as a third-grader once put it to me, eaten by the shadow.”

That was the quote which convinced me to set my alarm for the 1 a.m. lunar eclipse – the Blood Moon.  First time an eclipse has been visible from my Colorado home.  Generally we’re on the wrong side of the globe, wrong side of the U.S., too far south – or it’s snowing, clouds obscuring the view.

No excuse this go-around – snow ended Sunday, clearing all cumulus from the night sky.

Both dogs were groggy, unclear why we were up (yep, I woke the entire household).  Nothing like setting your alarm late on a Monday night to check out an eclipse in the early morning sky 🙂

Moon is up mighty high at 1 a.m. so can’t say I captured awesome pics – but absolutely enjoyed the experience.   WOW!


Goodnight stars

Goodnight air

Goodnight noises everywhere

Goodnight Blood Moon — hope to see you again in October.
