The Harvest Moon + Super Moon + Lunar Eclipse combo last night was outstanding!
And we caught it just at the right moment, on a bit of a whim.
Like the first time we saw the Austin bats….just hanging out on a deck and looked up to see a stream of black, painting the sky.
We thought the eclipse was going to be later around 11pm/midnight. But around
9:30pm Central time, Casey walked out on the back deck and he immediately knocked on the window for me to come out.
And there she was, all gorgeous in her red gown….like she was going to Homecoming or something.
So I grabbed my camera and tripod and snapped as best as I could.
It was hard to grab focus because the moon itself was so dark. But here you go. From our Austin, TX backyard.

I especially love the little scatter of stars.
And I hate to sound so silly by simplifying the obvious….but Space is truly amazing and fascinating! Just like the internet. And the human heart. And cotton candy.
Were you able to see the moon last night??
I loved the shots from the west coast, with a pink moon floating in a pale sky of blue. So cool!
