Super Blood Wolf Moon...

I didn't really know what to expect...
A Super Blood Wolf Moon and a Total Lunar Eclipse...
happening at midnight, when the temperatures were in the single digits.
I always read about these events on Facebook, the moon never looks much different to me...
so...was it worth it to stay up until midnight and freeze in the cold - it was!

It was a real celestial treat!
We saw both the eclipse and the beautiful super blood moon.
I will add, a nap was required to stay up until midnight.


These pictures were taken at midnight, I did not enhance the color!


Afterward, around 2 a.m., the moon returned to normal, well, sort of.
It is still a supermoon, 
which means that it will appear larger than usual due to it's proximity to earth.

I can usually get clearer pictures of the moon...

  13. Amazing photos! What kind of camera did you use to capture these images? I'm in awe! I went out to see the Blood Moon, but it was hazy and nothing this bright or magnificant. Love seeing these!
