Canada geese heading South by the light of the moon
The night before… I’ve always loved the moon the night before the full moon. Seeing those edges around the still blackened sliver. If you click on my picture, the details on the left hand side are splendid.
In 1982, the last time we had a Super Moon / Blood Moon visible from Quebec, I was 8 years old and maybe I knew about it back then, but honestly I can’t remember. And my husband, well he wasn’t even born. So to say that we were going to be staying up to watch the magic unfold last night come hell or high waters is an understatement. We haven’t been very lucky the last few years with night sky events : The last 3 Pleiades, we’ve had rain and clouds. And I can’t remember the last time I was able to observe an Eclipse of any kind. So after the kiddos were tucked away for the night, tea in hand and camera at the ready, my husband and I bundled up on the Adirondack Chairs on our back porch and settled in for the show. We were not disappointed.

The last 2 didn’t come out as sharp as I wanted them too, but I still don’t own a tripod. Definitely one of my next purchases. Also, little tip for myself next time (I mean, we will have our next in only 18 years!), check your battery before starting a 3 hour-long eclipse photo shoot. *sighs heavily* Next time, we’ll have pictures exiting penumbra!
Did anybody else watch? Did you take pictures? Please share your link in the comment section for all to see.
Have a wonderful week everyone.
