Blood Moon

Please excuse my inexpensive camera for not taking better pictures of this phenomenon.

For those of you in North America that find it necessary to sleep the morning away, this is what you missed around 6 AM Eastern time.

It is what is known as the Blood Moon. 
And it is what happens when the earth passes between the sun and the moon,
casting a shadow on the moon. 
As you can see even in my photos,
the shadow is a red color which gives it its name,
the Blood Moon.

According to the folklore, this will mean that I will be busy this week.

What do you think?

Interesting idea. I've seen blood moons before. Can't say they've ever brought anything really dramatic into my life. Let's see, shall we?

Well done Stewart ~~ I totally missed this event which I was looking forward too, another time I guess!
