Tax Day Blood Moon

Apache Junction, AZ  High 87  Low 58

We stayed up with Ginny and Mickey to watch the lunar eclipse tonight.

What a great experience. These were taken with my little point and shoot camera and I think Jim did a great job.

And now to bed. Goodnight.

From NASA - We'll never again for the rest of our lives see a total eclipse of the moon on the same night as the closest approach of a bright planet like Mars.

  11. The IRS has already mastered getting blood from a stone, now I see it's on to bigger things, getting blood from the moon on Tax Day! :cD

  12. Great pictures of the eclipse. We ran out of gas before the blood moon was full. We were watching Forrest Gump and running outside on commercials to take photos and check the progress.

  14. Oh what a treat. Your photos are fabulous. I bet seeing it in person was amazing. We had rain yesterday and snow this morning...YUCK! No viewing for us this time. Hopefully, we will get to see it in October.

  19. Good for you! And GREAT shots! I went to bed, woke up and looked out the window and it was dark, so I went back to sleep. Little did I know that meant the Blood Moon was up there. When I woke up an hour and a half later, I looked out the window and there was a bright moon. I went outside with my camera, just in case, and it was just a plain ole full moon. I had missed it. GRRRRRR
