Closest approach of the moon to the Earth = Super

 

Second full moon in a calendar month = Blue

 

Solar Eclipse = Blood

Super Blue Blood Moon.  :D

Sounds like a delicious pie.
Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity or ignorance. The latter are a lot more common than the former.

Is there a waiting list to predict "it'll destroy the electrical grid and trigger the apockyclipse!"?

What are all the "Doomers" predicting?   "Doomers" = Y2K/2012/Cern will open the gateway to hell crowd.

Maybe if I act like I'm not interested, then suddenly run out with my camera I might get a good shot. I am aware that U.S. eastern half-ers aren't supposed to get a good view of the eclipse part.

 

But if I go out with intent to catch a photo of the full moon rising, weather will cooperate until the events start, then cloud up and get crappy in a heartbeat!

I saw a lunar eclipse back in Nov of 1993 was so black at totality I could not see it even through 20x80 binoculars.

Even if you could have seen through it, I'll tell ya, it's full of stars.  :greensmilie:

Moon was half eclipsed by the time it set, I imagine the central and western states got a good showing.  /sigh

A friend who's up in the hills above me a few thousand feet sent me a cell photo, almost eclipsed. I'll ask if I can post it.
