- This past Tuesday evening, October 7, I left volunteer work just before sunset and was in the same spot, when I spotted the vapory looking moon, hanging huge and white in the sky, framed between those buildings. This turned comical, because I wanted to snap a photo of it with my phone when I stopped at the next light. But it was not to be: this NEVER happens - I got green light, another green light, and I kept going, missing my turn, determined to snap that photo. And I got green lights all the way to Peachtree Street, where I was forced to turn left and lost the view. So I gave up and had a head shaking laugh at hitting all the green lights. That has never once happened before now, and then the sun was setting, so missed snapping that photo, and imagined the green lights laughing back at me. :)
- So I asked Siri, "is there a super moon tonight?" and got a response that there was a "Blood Moon" on the morning of October 8 that would be best viewed in the 6:30am hour. Hey - I'm up then, so I got my shower early, made coffee and took it and a bowl of cereal to the parking lot of the condos and watched the lunar eclipse before heading to work, with only one curious look from a neighbor driving past me leaving the complex. It was a peaceful 25 minutes - watching the eclipse, listening to early morning sounds and watching the lights come on slowly around in the buildings. One neighbor in the next building to the left curiously has Christmas lights in a bush beside his front door. I've never noticed that before. I just don't look that way when I'm leaving for work. On this day, the moon didn't really glow blood red for me, but disappeared. I got in my car and got on with the day.
Did someone mention coffee? Time to go make some. I hope you are well and happy this morning. Have a lovely weekend!
