Goodnight moon.

Good night from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ•πŸŒβ€οΈ

Goodnight moon.

There was an almost full moon tonight…

My moon app said it was 97.6% full moon tonight. Tomorrow is supposed to be 99.9% full moon. But it’s been so cloudy that you have to take the almost full moon views when you can. Goodnight moon. πŸ˜€πŸŒ•β€οΈ

Goodnight moon.

Tomorrow night there is going to be a Wolf Moon lunar eclipse. Unfortunately, the eclipse will only be visible primarily from the Eastern Hemisphere, with countries in Europe, Africa and much of Asia in prime viewing position. But tonight, we were still treated to an almost full moon. My moon app said tonight’s moon was 99.6% full…

When we got home from our dog walk, I took a few photos of the moon with my mega-zoom Samsung Galaxy S…

It’s a bummer that it’s supposed to rain tomorrow. I’d like to at least see tomorrow night’s full moon. But that probably won’t happen. Goodnight moon. πŸ˜€πŸŒ•β€οΈ

UPDATE: There are some amazing photos of the Wolf Moon lunar eclipse over at Space.com and Space.com also has a terrific 2020 Full Moon Calendar.

Good morning from Northside.

We could still see the full moon this morning…

And the clouds were pretty too…

Good morning from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ•β€οΈ

Look up in the sky.

We were up super early this morning. And we got to see the huge full moon…

Full moons sure are beautiful. πŸ˜€πŸŒ•β€οΈ

Super Wolf Blood Moon.

Tonight, the moon passed through Earth’s shadow inΒ 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…Β 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. πŸ˜€πŸŒ•β€οΈ

Good evening from Northside.

And one our way back home after walking through Parker Woods…

An almost supermoon.

There was an almost supermoon this evening. It was a 98.7% full moon. It’ll be a full-fledged full supermoon tomorrow night but it’s been so rainy lately that I don’t know that we’ll actually be able to see it tomorrow. And it’ll be the last supermoon until 2020 so here’s an almost supermoon…
