Blood Moon


In NZ we got to have both a very favourable location and time to engage with this rare event.  The last time such a blood moon happened of this duration was apparently in 1212 CE - before there was any human population here.


It happened in the late evening: from about 9:30-12:00am and the sky was clear, but alas with a very thin veil of cloud that also reflected the light pollution of the city and thus reduced the image quality.  Still, I gave it a go.

I think the white dot to the lower right of the moon is likely to be Venus, but I will take advice on that!

cheers, TREVOR

Nice shot!

It was cloudy here in Florida and it occured between 3 a.m. and daylightish. I was up then (I'm a night owl), but, it was cloudy 😞 I got the last one, though, in January 2019 🙂
