Just before 7am, a little higher up, at The Bluffs, Redding (CA.)

Do you know why this beautiful moon is called a blue moon? I didn’t know, so I had to read about it. It’s because it’s the second full moon in the same month (January.) It’s more logical to understand why it’s called a blood moon, it was really red this morning. Even more than my photos shows. Night photography have never been my strength, I haven’t done much of it, but this was a special occasion. The experience made it worth getting out early. What did the Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse look like where you live? Did you get to see it?

I hope you enjoyed the view from up here in northern California ❤ May the rest of your day be as beautiful as this morning.

      • I bet it was stunning. Even though I am surrounded by mountains and trees here, there is this one little wide open park close to my home where you can watch Moon Rise all year round. I just have a point and shoot camera, I’ve had so much fun photographing that rise…

        • Thank you, it was. That is wonderful that you have your own spot to watch the moon rise. Those special places means so much. I worked at a ranch in the desert of Nevada a few years back. My favorite time of the day was watching the moon rise, as I fed the horses. The moon look huge out in the desert, with few other landmarks.

  1. An experience well worth rising early to see – nice shots! Being on the East Coast, we only had the larger moon to view. I saw both the rising and the setting moon (I usually tend the fire between 5 and 6 am).
