Hopefully you got to see the Super Blood Moon eclipse tonight! It was quite… spectacular. And long! For us in the Central time zone, it began around 8:07 PM and ended around 11:27 PM. The total eclipse began around 9:11 PM, peaking at 9:47 PM.
The Husbear and I headed to the end of our road to observe, as the moon was obscured by the trees on the ridgeline we live on. And we were greeted with the start of the show.
I managed to take these pictures with my iPhone and an olloclip 2X telephoto lens. I was actually surprised how well they turned out.
We ended up coming back to the house around 9 PM, and I watched the rest of the show from there, as the moon had finally cleared the trees on the ridge.
The last supermoon eclipse happened in 1982 when I was 9, and the next won’t occur until 2033 when I’ll be 60. Here’s hoping I’m around to see it.
The 12 of 12 Challenge was created by Chad Darnell and picked up from a number of random bloggers who then linked back to him and vice versa. Chad stopped doing the 12 of 12 links in December of 2011, but passed the torch to someone else who sadly hasn’t been keeping up with it. So as always, I’m giving my shout-out to Blobby of Blobby’s Blog as he is the one who inspired me to do it. And still does.
All pictures were taken with my iPhone 6.
Until next time...

A scene from sunset… before finding the road washed out.
