January 31, 2018 Super Blue Blood Moon! Do NOT Panic!


#1

Announcement:


I wish NASA would include Arkansas and Eastern USA, but NO00oo.


#2

A few centuries back this would be considered a bad omen and the flu panic would be replaced by super blue blood moon panic :new_moon: :sweat_smile:
The world is ending my son :end:


#3

That’s what I was thinking, it may be time to evacuate this planet.


It will not be visible at all in the Mid-Atlantic Ocean but…


#4

So you’re saying I should cancel the human sacrifice party?
Actually, I’m hoping to catch some of this since I missed the last blood moon. Got to get the camera ready and the ladder to the roof set up.


#5

Seriously thank you for posting this, i dern near forgot all about it.


#6

Well my wife is in the hospital, but I spotted the moon out her window early this morning, so my wife and I got to witness the super blue blood moon in partial eclipse!


#7

Beautiful event! Cooked up a couple of the neighbors and had a party!


#8

Glad you could see the blood moon, but sorry where you had to do it from.


#9

Prayers. 10chr

The Moon tonight is absolutely beautiful very large but more pale yellow as I see it now on the East coast. I will have to check NASA for pictures of the lunar in the morning.


#11

Yeah, big and beautiful here too but im out of the zone, unfortunately.


#12

Me too I’m back in FL presently so not guna see the real deal either but the Moon is stunning tonight !


#13

At the very least it will get people outside and looking up. :slight_smile:


#14

Totally agree I love stargazing. I used to have a telescope but that was many moons and moves ago lol :wink:


#15

So wish that last night the camera battery was charged i was forced to take a really crappy picture with my phone.
But the red moon did look cool.


#16

It looked something like this but the earth’s shadow on top left was more defined and it was more golden yellow colored. I attempted a pic with my cell phone but it failed. We watched it for about 10 minutes early morning sometime around 4am before it set behind a building

note: i did not take this pic, just found it on the net, then edited it to match my memory.

:flushed:

Don’t panic everyone! It’s just the super blue blood full moon! Everything will resume it’s happy equilibrium in 3…2…

Hrm…maybe not. :no_mouth:

:rofl: It was pretty beautiful, not gonna lie. I stood out in the cold for a few extra minutes just to look at it. :stuck_out_tongue:

P.S. Too soon?


#18

Or not soon enough, you had to be up before sunrise this morning
:slight_smile: its ok though, these events happen about every 150 years.
Our local news made a time error for the visibility of the event, I think they used EST instead of CST because it looked quite eclipsed at the time we looked at it. I remembered it being 6am my wife told me it was 3 or 4am. There is another blue moon coming soon, some interesting reading about blue moon events can be found at:
