Did everyone see the “blood moon” the other night? It was a special night to see the blood moon, or the total lunar eclipse . Here is my favorite image of it. My camera phone did not do it justice, but I like this one of the blood moon. I saw it this morning on my facebook news feed.
So it came up last night just before 7pm Hawaiian Standard Time. Then close to 8pm is when it began to get it reddish, orange-ish hue. It sure was neat to see. I also like the fact that I did not have to wake up from my slumber at oh say 3am to see it. It was conveniently timed here on Kauai!
This total lunar eclipse is what everyone was and is talking about. I think it was neat to see, and I liked brushing up on my science knowledge to understand how this exactly happened. It is not the first time this has happened and it will not be the last. To my understanding , this is the first of four eclipses between now and September of next year. Pretty neat they are all clustered together like this. Next up on the calendar is April 28th’s annular eclipse. This is when the moon will partially block the sun and the sun will look like only a ring of fire. I’m looking forward to this next one!
