Blood Moon Monday

I mourn the loss of my youth. 
At least the loss of my ability to stay up past ten o'clock without completely turning into a pumpkin.
I remember when midnight was my strongest hour!
Sadly, this is no longer the case.

However, if I could relish just a little bit of energy I would definitely stay awake for this one:

Tonight, rather early Tuesday morning (around 2 am) there will be an eclipse known as a 'blood moon;'
apparently it is a full eclipse where the earth's shadow casts a hauntingly red hue on the moon.

Cool beans!

This combination of 10 separate images shows the moon during a total lunar eclipse in 2011 from the Spanish Canary Island of Tenerife.

This image is by Desiree Martin taken from the Spanish Canary Island of Tenerife. I found it on NPR's blogsite below.
Beautiful, yes!?

Here are a few great articles on the event for your reading pleasure:




I would love to see this.
But can I manage to stay awake, or wake up at that time?!

With my luck a big fat cloud will roll in....

Let me know if any of you brave souls see this tonight!

Happy Blood Moon Monday!
