On Saturday (0500) I’ll be getting up to look at the night sky. Why?
I’ll be looking at the dark red micro moon at full eclipse. A total lunar eclipse. It will be beautiful.
The super-moon eclipse was amazing, too, but when the moon is so big, so close, it feels ominous. The red micro-moon doesn’t do that. It’s amazing, it’s dramatic, but it’s not so close that you feel it breathing down your neck.
So, watch out foxes, watch out all you night critters, I’m coming outside on Saturday morning, at O-dark-hundred (not really, it’ll be sparrow-fart) to watch the moon from full-eclipse to moon-set.
Then I’ll go back to a normal day. With a smile on my dial.
If it isn’t raining …
