Because the moon takes on a reddish hue it is called a Blood Moon.
I didn't set an alarm or wait up for it. I just woke up, shortly before one a.m.
I quickly slipped on a pair of flip-flops, grabbed my trusty camera and went outside to take a look.
There it was, high in the sky, just a light orange color to it.
I was excited. Think of it. The moon, normally lighted by the rays of the sun, was totally in shadow because of the interference of my home. Planet Earth.
It makes one feel a certain humility.
In case you missed it, I took a photograph to show you.
Here it is, from my trusty point-and-click camera.
