  • Lunar Eclipse (Spring Corn Moon) Monday Night/Tuesday Morning

    Lunar Eclipse tomorrow night ...

    And as as we all know the first full moon in April is the "Spring Corn Moon" and under the light of a lunar eclipse it is possible to talk to the crystals. Especially here is Colorado, even the Cheetos and Gold Fish are known to talk.

    And the red dust is really moon dust - that is why the moon is red during a lunar eclipse. Though it could also be Flaming Hot Cheetos dust.

    The color of Earth's shadow, and thus the color of the eclipsed Moon, depends substantially on the amount of volcanic ash and other aerosols floating in the stratosphere. According to atmospheric sciences professor Richard Keen of the University of Colorado, the stratosphere is clear. This means the eclipse will be not "blood red," but rather bright orange.

        So, would it be safe to assume she was not in the mood for any post-lunar-eclipse physical activities?

          Not the kind you may be thinking of anyway!

              Beautiful eclipse last night with Mars and Venus near by. Celestial dance worth the late night stroll. The moonrise earlier was impressive.

              If you put your back to the moon and bend over and look at it between your legs, the moon appears twice as big.

              (if you try this please have a friend take a picture…)

                  Nice!
                  I went out but haven't gone through all the photos yet. I had a commercial shoot yesterday evening and had to work on those shots first.

                  Here's one of the Moon and the brighter star is Spica with Mars out of the frame. I have bigger plans for some of the upcoming eclipses coming in the next year.

                      Nice shot Matt. Will post one of the shots my daughter took when I get a moment to extract it from her camera.

                      What size lens were you using? We had an old 500mm mirror laying around.

                      ain't no turn like tele!

                        Thanks. I think that was a 300/4 on a 2x tele converter for an effective 600mm.
                        Here's one more I took with a 60-250/4 so I could include Mars.

                            Nice capture, Matt.

                            Representing from the SF Bay area, here. I didn't catch the eclipse, but was hiking Mt. Tam and did see the rise next to Mt. Diablo.

                            It's turns! Of course it's worth the hike!

                              Exactly what I was thinking.
