Blood

Posted on | April 15, 2014 | No Comments

I watched the lunar eclipse of April 14-15 2014 from the boat access to Cutler Reservoir that lies between Newton and Cache Junction. I was a little surprised that no one else had chosen this spot to view the event, but then again, distance from areas of light pollution was not necessary and it was coming up on 1 AM – and very chilly, too.

I was not completely alone, though. There were some geese nearby that became quite vocal while expressing their disapproval at my intrusion into their territory, and I heard quite a few splashes caused by jumping fish. I don’t usually hang out at the river in the middle of the night so I’m not sure if fish activity is normal at that hour, but it seemed a bit strange to me.

Back to the eclipse: I have a poor recollection of past events overall, but I don’t remember seeing a blood moon eclipse before. What a sight it was!

My shot probably isn’t all that different when compared to the pictures others have posted, but here’s my version of the overnight eclipse:
