seeing red

 The Moon and Spica.


A few clouds, but not bad for eclipse night. A remarkable sight. The earth’s shadow kept biting the moon until it was red. Snapped a couple pics. Plenty of owls ‘who, whoing’. I can imagine they cursed the eclipse as it made the rodents harder to see. Before the moon had moved from the shadow the clouds rolled in. It was nice of them to hold off as long as they did. You don’t see the moon act up like that every day. Very good night.

The Earths shadow covers all but a sliver of the Moon.
