A Bloody Moon

Earth’s lone natural satellite took center during November’s full moon (Beaver Moon). The Moon, Earth and Sun aligned in conjunction casting the earth’s shadow on the moon. In fact, sunlight, which illuminates the moon did not reach the moon’s surface during the eclipse. Instead, the moon appeared reddish/orangish. The eclipse is said to be the longest partial lunar eclipse in about 600 years, clocking in a duration of about 3 hours and 30 minutes. My full documentation of the eclipse will shared over the next few days. So stay tuned and continue to experience an amazing universe!

  1. Nice photo! I figured you’d be posting something about this event. Was just waiting for it to hit the internet. Well I didn’t see it here, weather has been overcast but besides that I’m not even sure if we were in the zone.
    Nice job on that one and I will be looking forward to more photos. I of course have experienced a number of full lunar eclipses myself, and they are always quite an interesting and rewarding evening,!
    All the best,

    1. Thank you my friend. I prayed for a clear night 🙈. You sure would have been able to see it from where you are. Marn it was a real beauty. I will be trying some things with the over 700 shots I took 😊.
