Blood Moon –

Blood Moon –

The night sky is one of the best things about living in the country.  Without city lights to compete, the moon and stars are so bright they seem close enough to touch.  And when the moon is full it is seems almost alive.  Full moons are so bright sometimes that you can read a book after dark with no other light.

This ‘blood moon’ happens on a full lunar eclipse.  This is when the sun, then the earth, and then the moon line up in a perfect line like balls on a pool table.  I woke up to see it because it doesn’t happen very often.  This photo was taken around 3:00 am.  The solar system is like a big clock.  It turns and runs right on time and solar and lunar events can be predicted out to thousands of years.

‘Blood moon’ just sounds good too.
