Full Wolf Blood Moon Total Eclipse


It was exciting to watch the full moon eclipse tonight under clear, cold skies. Being relatively close to the Great Lakes, we generally have more days and nights with at least some cloud than without. The temperature is very cold but it could be colder in mid-January. This moon comes with plenty of labels. As well as being a Wolf Moon, it is a Perigee Moon (super moon), a Blood Moon as well as a totally eclipsed moon. I don't plan to stay up to watch the reverse show as the moon returns to its full brightness in a couple of hours.

Postscript: I did another edit in the morning with my best shots. Photos are hand held with a Canon SX50 superzoom camera.

  1. I am surprised by your skies. I was thinking that you would have been totally obscured like us.

    1. Your weather is not enviable! Snow and super cold temperatures usually do not come together.

  2. You got great shots of this event. I depended on others to get the pictures, so I didn't have to brave the bone chilling temperatures we were having.

    1. Thankfully I just had to take 3 steps outside my back door to get the pictures. I was out and in pretty quickly every 10-15 minutes. But you had colder temps, no doubt.

    1. Thank you for visiting. I took a look at your Ottawa blog and will have to use it as a reference when I am in the city.
