It was a blood moon rising
A Castanet reader, whose husband is currently working in Texas, sent in the following images from last night’s blood moon.
Andy Neumann took these great photos of the moon as it rose and changed in the sky over Midland, Texas.
Star-gazers in Kelowna were not so lucky as the cloudy sky obscured the views. About half a dozen disappointed people turned out at the Kelowna Curling Club last night. While unable to see the moon, they were able to watch the live NASA stream online from the Griffith Park Observatory in Los Angeles.
There will be three more total lunar eclipses over the next two years, at approximately six-month intervals. The next one is expected on Oct. 8 and will be is visible over North America, Australia, and east Asia.
