Shining Stars & BDubs.

This morning we went to the grocery store. I don’t ever really get to go the grocery all that much. It was just a pretty normal trip to the store. But look at how cute this space bear was…

Those Shining Stars came home with us. We also noticed these moonshine sausages…

I wonder wat those are like. And there were these completely plant-based sausages that I want to try once it’s time to slow down and grill again

I wonder if they’re good. Speaking of good after the grocery, we stopped at BDubs. It was some of the best BDubs that I’ve had in quite a while. Genifer ordered boneless wings and fries…

We shared some mini corn dogs. I had the crispy BBQ chicken sammich…

And I got a free snack-sized wing for my birthday through their app…

It was really good stuff. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿป๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Good morning from Northside.

There’s still plenty of snow…

Super Wolf Blood Moon.

Tonight, the moon passed through Earth’s shadow inย the only total lunar eclipse of 2019. The next total eclipse won’t happen until 2021, and we’ll have to wait until 2022 for a blood moon to be visible again from North America. A blood moon is when the moon goes into eclipse and turns blood red. Tonight’s total lunar eclipse also occurred while the moon was very near it’s closest point to Earth this month, making it a supermoon. And since January’s full moon is also known as a Wolf Moon, that’s led some people to call tonight’s lunar event…ย Super Blood Wolf Moon.

During a total eclipse, the moon passes so deep into the shadow that any light reaching its surface only comes from the edge of Earth, where sunrises and sunsets are taking place. That light falls on to the moon and turns it red. Tonight when the moon went into eclipse, it turned blood red. We could see the full moon just above the horizon on our way out to watch the conference championship football games…

And later, we snuck outside to try to get a peek at the Super Wolf Blood Moon…

It was too cold outside to break out the dSLR cameras, big lenses or tripod. I just used my Samsung Galaxy Note9 and my new Moment 60mm Tele lens…

I got this capture that I was pretty happy with…

I love lunar events like this and really anything to do with the moon. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ•โค๏ธ
