Super blue blood moon

Super blue blood moon

4:50am PST, January 31, 2018. Clouds had been forecast, but at our house the night was mostly clear, with wisps of mist veiling over the moon, making it appear to pulse. It was fun that it happened to be a “blue moon,” the second full moon in the calendar month; it was spectacular that it happened to be a “super moon,” the full moon closest to Earth in its elliptical orbit; it was magnificent as it became a “blood moon,” with the shadow of the Earth totally eclipsing its brilliant face, painting it red.
