The moon turned red. Willow and I were out waiting. Moonrise varies in the mountains. It doesn’t bother me. The stars and moon come up as they should. It’s never as expected. Clouds were rolling in the east. It was a spectacular sight. One of the many cool things about a a total lunar eclipse is the sky gets dark and the stars come out, like they never would under a full moon. When the moon comes out of eclipse it washes the stars away. There is something eery about it. I can’t imagine what ancient people thought about, what would have been, such an unpredictable event.
