Super Moon Eclipse

Sunday night we brought our folding chairs out to the driveway and watched the super “blood” moon eclipse. Besides being in awe of the beauty of this amazing phenomenon, we felt a great sense of connection with all the people everywhere who were also watching.
The moon looked so huge as it crept up over the hill across from us. The eclipse had begun a few minutes before we were able to see it rise.

We were only clueless for less than a minute, however, and then I was dashing into the house for my camera.

  1. Stunning captures, Melinda! We watched it as well, but I didn’t get great shots like you have here. It was truly a moment of a lifetime.
