Blood Moon

Wake up, get outta bed, drag a comb across my. . . . no wait . . I don't do the comb thing  . . never mind.

2:00 this morning I wish I would have taken this photo but MY attempt fell short.  HOWEVER, my nephew in Texas was more successful.

My attempts were problematic as I still had a slice of moon which was brilliant white and with the darker red moon the contrast was just too much for my sensors.  So, I have a plan for October 8th (a Wednesday night/morning) and I'll have something really cool planned for the NEXT Blood Moon.
