Supermoon Eclipse in my Garden

Can't believe I haven't posted here since early May... There was a fantastic show tonight and I'm happy I was able to witness it from my back yard. Perfect sky up until the eclipse was full and then clouds rushed in. Doesn't matter, I've seen all of it.











Hope to do this again in 2033!

I've been concerned about your absence. And every time I made a mental note to write you, life erased it for me! It was too overcast down here to see it. Drat. Thanks for viral substitute! :-)

I envy you just a bit. Went out to see it and the cloud cover was too thick. I just got a haze of red. Lovely shots.

Just prio to the start the clouds over Detroit broke completely and returned just after the moon was back full. Oddly enough, I guess none of the schools around here told the students to look up--there was no one else out watching. Shame.

May huh? OK that's cool Vesper. That means you're living life. Nothing wrong with that eh/

Vesper said...

Roland, thanks my friend! Time flies... but I can't even say that I was having fun. :-)

X, thank you for stopping by! Yeah, I couldn't believe the chance of a perfectly clear sky... I'm not sure why my camera didn't capture the reddish hue.

Mark, life? I'm not sure about that... Probably more like my fantasy life, while struggling through the forest of an outline... :-)
Yeah, I was surprised that they didn't mention the eclipse in my daughters' school. Also, no word about water on Mars... :-(

Glad you got some good pictures. These are cool. We were clouded out down here.

Glad to know that all is well with you, Vesper_!
__Kathy and I watched the entire eclipse, and here it reddened some... a grand sight.

Fantasy life is good too. Never struggle with an outline. Sometimes you simply have to fly by the seat of your pants and write without worrying about sequences. :)

Vesper said...

Charles, thanks! I can only imagine what amazing pictures Lana would've taken... :-)

I love this, Doug... missed your haikus! So beautifully said... our shadow cast across the moon...

Thanks, Paul!

Hey, Erik, thanks!

Bernard, yeah, outlines are not my style... but I felt I needed one for this novel. I gave up in the end, more or less, but it did serve a purpose. :-)

Thank you for the experience. Our sky at the time of the eclipse was clouded and the event took place here in Europe between 1AM to 4 AM, when I, uhm, do not usually in the mood for taking photos :)
Hope all's well, wiht love,

WOW!!!! Just amazing Cora and how lucky you were to witness this. :-) Thanks for sharing these stellar photos. Night photos are so hard to do well but you have.
