Out here on the prairie, the night sky is unobscured by buildings, trees, and artificial light… for the most part.
Tuesday night, as you all know, there was a blood moon and an eclipse for our viewing pleasure. My husband set the alarm and from 4 a.m., and every half hour he would peek out our west bedroom window and give me an account of what was happening to the moon.
I was vaguely aware of what he said, but I did manage to stagger to the window and look for myself, a couple of times.
He, however, proceeded to get dressed and phone his friend in town and they compared their observations.
My husband, took some interesting pictures of the event so I thought I’d share them with you.
When I hear the term “Blood Moon,” It conjures up Biblical terms for me. Maybe it’s a sign that the world is coming to an end!
Whatever the meaning, scientific or otherwise, it was beautiful and mysterious, and we had great seats!
