Super Moon & Total Lunar Eclipse Coming Sunday Night – Eastern U.S.

Even when I was a kid, I’ve always had a fascination with the moon.  It’s up there and it seems so close!

On Sunday it’ll be extra BIG because it’s so close in its orbit around Earth, so it’ll be a Super Moon.  And, it will also be a total lunar eclipse that will be best viewable in the eastern half of the U.S.  This image shows the various viewing zones on earth.

Anticipating this Super Moon and lunar eclipse, I decided to take a few pictures tonight, through a hazy sky.

And, there is no truth to the rumor that my Sweetheart, my fiancée, was seen riding a great white shark across the face of the moon, as far as anyone can tell.

A Rose Is A Rose!

Rosette Nebula

Continuing the “outer space” theme of the moment, this is called the Rosette Nebula, and you can see why.

And, this is the Red Rose of Saturn, which is a huge storm on the planet.
