West Coast Super Blood Moon Blogging

You didn’t think I’d just ignore this, did you? Of course not. So here’s my contribution to super blood moon blogging. This was taken at 8:24 pm, just as the moon was starting to come out of full eclipse. Luckily, all our cloud cover was to the west, and the east was nice and clear. The exposure apparently tested the outside limits of my little catblogging camera, and the color shifted considerably from shot to shot—sometimes red, sometimes a sort of orangey rust, sometimes a bit purplish. That’s what you get with a cheap camera and residential streets, I guess. Enjoy.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
