Tonight is a "blood moon" or pink moon lunar eclipse. It is goibg to be the start of the blood moon tetrad going on over all the next year, so there will be more! This has some interesting hype associated with what changes people. Are theorizing these rare moons may bring in. Quite interesting. Anyone watching tonight?

Maybe I should try and stay up and watch , it seems clear here so far, 5 hours to go though before it would be visible here... at least there are other opportunities for watching more coming up soon for those who do not get to witness this one!

i'm pretty sure a blood moon isn't vegan, y'all. i'm not looking out of protest for all the moons sacrificed for this astrological event. (also bc it's cloudy)

I have a clear view of the moon right now out my kitchen window, so I set an alarm for 1:00am. I'm going to stay on the couch and read, ppk, or nap, so my alarm, light, and typing away don't wake my sleeping spouse.

I'm going to a full moon meditation tomorrow night. Not sure if the moon tomorrow is going to be a full blood moon...I think it's only tonight for now. I'm always up late so I can look out the window later but I can't always see the moon from my vantage point--it moves around but I'll check anyway.

I fell asleep on my couch, woke up at just before 1:00am, looked outside and couldn't see the moon at all. So either it moved to somewhere where I couldn't see it, or I was enjoying the eclipse. I went to bed at that point and did not get back up to check on the moon.

We had pretty good visibility with a bit of haze up until midnight, when it clouded over and entirely blocked any view of the moon. Alas.

It was hazy but with binoculars we saw the beginning of the eclipse around 11:30. I was too tired to stay up any later!

I couldn't see the moon either, last night. Either it was too cloudy, or the moon was not around. I think it was not around because the clouds weren't that thick--they were like laundry lint clouds so I still should have been able to see the moon through them, were it in a spot in the sky where I could see it.

Same! Everything was clear and bright up until it was time.

I did not know this was supposed to happen, but I was coming back to my studio from the print shop across campus and looked up and it was a great strange surprise!
