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.

 

Love,
