I bet most of you caught a glimpse of the Super/Blood Moon last night, right? I was able to capture a couple of okay shots on my Canon camera, but things like breathing got in the way of a perfectly clear photo. After many failed attempts, I decided to simply enjoy the view with my own eyes. What a sight! Still, a tripod might have to go on my wish list for Christmas.
Here’s a view of the Super Moon as it began to rise at around 7:00.
I raced inside to grab the girls shoes and we walked down the street to get a less obstructed view. I was about to take the picture, when the clouds began to float in. Nooooooo!
Luckily the clouds parted and I was able to capture the eclipse in the first photo at around 9:45 p.m. And now, 18 more years to wait until the next Super Moon eclipse. Hmmm…maybe we’ll have to plan a family trip to fall around October 8, 2033. I picture all of us sipping a cocktail along the beach or out on the balcony of a rustic lodge watching the moon rise together. No rush though, now it is one day at a time…or make that one minute at a time on certain days. 😉
