Sometimes it just isn’t meant to be

FACT
A total lunar eclipse happens when the moon is completely in the Earth’s shadow.
Even though the moon is in the Earth’s shadow, some light does manage to hit the lunar surface during the eclipse, and this is what gives the moon it’s red – orange glow and hence it’s name BLOOD MOON

EXPERIENCE

I have been reading up about the blood moon that would appear tonight at 9:25pm EDST. As if on queue at 9:27pm the clouds began to part and a thin red hue glow began to appear on the edge of the moon. I raced inside to grab a camera to take some photos of this natural phenomena. Here are three taken about 10 minutes apart.
Did you take a look at the blood moon…what did you see ?

A mum to 2 grown up children who always make me proud, a wife and a full time school teacher. I love eating great food but am not motivated to cook. Love traveling around this great country in which I live. Often found traveling with my husband Brian. I write for pleasure and if it's read (and enjoyed) by others then that's a bonus! 2014 saw me begin the 'new' me. Working hard at leaving the fear of 'what if' behind and replacing it with YOLO adventures. :)

  1. Ah – Murphy’s Law!

  2. Lol! I went to bed as it was raining here in Melbourne and didn’t stand a chance to see it!

  3. We were in Melbourne and kept going outside to view, but , alas, the clouds did not even part for a glimpse… however, we did see the last one 🙂

  4. We had a beautiful, fine and sunny day here in Qld but the same thing happened to us that night. lol

  5. It was a clear night in Adelaide.
    We have a hotel next door and some German tourists who were staying there were outside looking at the sky – they were gobsmacked!
    I am sorry you missed it.

  6. I’m sorry I missed it too 😦 it must have made a great watch and memory for you. The night sky is an amazing thing with so many fascinating events .
