Blogging A to Z, M is for Blood Moon, Lunar Eclipse

I got up last night at 1 a.m. and luckily it was a clear night. to watch the first "Blood Moon" Lunar Eclipse. 






So eerie when the earth is passing over the moon's face and it is bright like daylight, the geese were squawking by the lake.

Then it was so dark I couldn't get a better image. It looked like an orange ball in the sky. When I looked at the earlier stage it was a darker orange.  (This pic is highlighted a bit) (Watch the actual event below on Griffith Observatory video)

  1. I got up as well. Nothing but a plain crescent moon. No orange in Northern NH.
